Re: I am terrified..please help
I have a friend who has lumps in her throat and she is freaking out as well. I did some research, and while im not a doctor, I think you should have a thyroid disease looked at... I dont think its cancer. Your thyroid absorbs iodine, thyroid cells are the only cells in the body that can do this. Now if they are absorbing too much, or not enough iodine, this will make the thyroid swell.
However, even though I dont think it is cancer,
if it is
the cancer is 97% curable, because of thyroids cells amazing ability to absorb iodine. Doctors can give you radioactive iodine, which only the thyroid cells will absorb.... killing them from within and eradicating the cancer. Because only thyroid cells will absorb the radioactive iodine, there is no pain, sickness or hairloss.
Good luck and hope that helped
