Question Question about effect of stress.

Greetings,
I have been diagnosed with probable thyroid cancer in the right lobe of my thyroid and will be having surgery in September to remove the right lobe of my thyroid. If the tissue confirms malignancy I will be having another surgery to remove the rest of my thyriod followed by RAI treatment.

I am wondering how many of those posting to this board have experienced high stress levels in their life prior to their diagnosis and what kind of stress was experienced (for example: work, lifestyle, relationship, serious events)

Thank you in advance for your comments.

Re: Question about effect of stress.

Your cancer probably developed about 8 years before you found it---possibly even more because this is very slow growing. So if your stress caused the cancer, then it was from stress a loooong time ago. More likely, there is someone in your family tree that had cancer, or will be diagnosed, because cancer is usually genetic---it can be a different type though. I had thyroid cancer, and I now since diagnosis have relatives with other types of cancer.

If it's your fna is suspicious, you still have a likelihood of this being benign.

Hope you have a really great and experienced surgeron---wishing you benign results and an easy surgery!
