I've read that many thyroid cancers don't even require surgery if they are confined to the thyroid nodules. You can just watch and wait. So why all the surgeries?
My question is, how do they know it's encapsulated or confined to the nodules? I've had 3 US for my nodules in last 13 years, all are quite different but nodules keep growing. I don't believe I have cancer but if I did, no problem for 13 years. I asked naturopath how I would know if I'm having signs/symptoms and she said dunno, is too general a question.
Anyone else in this situation?
I've been to 2 internists, 1 ENT and 2 naturopaths. All tell me my blood work is just fine, no hashi's or hypot/hypert. None think this is an issue for me so I guess I don't either (other than choking all the time), am just curious.
