Re: Possible medullary but also suspicious for papilliary
Thought I'd do an update in case anyone else finds themselves in my position.
I had TT and neck dissection 2 weeks ago and final pathology showed only papillary cancer. Yay!
None of my lymph nodes were malignant and no sign of spread beyond thyroid. So all good news. I still don't understand why medullary was mentioned on the biopsy report but I guess these things are imprecise. I never thought I'd be happy to hear I had any type of cancer but when I found out I just had papillary I was so excited I nearly set back my recovery by throwing my neck around hugging family!
I have found out since that you can get pap and med thyroid cancer together but lucky for me I just have stage 1 papillary :-)
