Anyone been diagnosed with Medullary Thyroid Cancer?

If so, how did it come about and did you have symptoms.

Have you been diagnosed with medullary?

I didn't have that, I had pappillary a few years back, which is found through a discovery of nodules usually (often no symptoms)

I know medullary is treated differently, how are they treating your cancer?

Re: Anyone been diagnosed with Medullary Thyroid Cancer?

I highly recommend you consider the thyroid cancer (abbreviated) organization. They have support groups (email and in person) specifically for people with thyroid cancer, as well as a special segment for medullary. They can also put you in touch with surgeons and endos. with experience specific to it.

Best of luck to you and your husband.
