I just had a TT two weeks ago. Biopsy came back Papillary carcinoma with follicular variant. I am set to see the Nuclear Medicine specialist in 5 days to see what the course of action will be (my surgeon advised I will need RAI).
Two years ago I had a CT Scan of neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis, when I originally presented with a sensation of a lump when swallowing, body aches and lethargy.
Multiple bilateral thyroid nodules (largest being 1.9cm).
Bilateral neck lymph nodes (largest being 2 cm.)..none pathologic in appearance.
Three small low density nodules in right hepatic lobe, all around 1 cm and equivalent to solid tissue.
Left kidney 2 cm angiomyolipoma and a 1.5 cm Bosniak Type1 cyst.
After a 6 month follow up of an ultrasound everything was left to watch until two years later(approx. 4 months ago)...
I went back to my ENT and presented with a goiter and severe lethargy (among a hundred and one other symptoms). The ENT biopsied my thyroid and it resulted in a Hashimotos diagnosis.
The ENT then sent me to an ENDO who I convinced to do a FNA of the nodules in my goiter.
Two weeks ago after the FNA they quickly followed up with a total thyroidectomy and I unfortunately got the above mentioned cancer result.
Sorry.... my long winded question is....has anyone else presented with thyroid nodules and or the other nodules and what came of it? Or, is there a relation that I should be looking at? The other stuff was swept under the rug a year and a half ago and then with the thyroid issues ...I can't believe that they are not related but maybe I am just over reacting?
PLEASE if anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated! Any answers at all!
Thank you so much for your time!
