Re: Hurtle Cells detected
Thanks Ashley- I guess you found it! My doctor, who I have only seen 3 times, the first being a couple of years ago when the nodule was first dicovered, and at that time he said it was the size of a golf ball (!), he sent me for a MRI and he also did a fna which came back with no suspicious cell growth. He said to just monitor it.
I wish he would have recommended it be removed then and maybe now I wouldn't be in this predicament. Woulda, shouda, coulda, ...won't waste time there! So he leaves me this message on my voicemail last week, about the results of the fna and Hurthle cell findings and the suspiciousness, and not knowing whether or not it is cancer until I have surgery, and that he doesn't do surgery anymore so he is referring me to another doc in his practice. Then when I call him back the following day he is too busy to speak to me to answer any questions and an appointment isn't available for 2 weeks, with him or the doc he is referring me to. So yea, I'm looking for a new doctor for sure. I do meet with his associate on Friday. The only answers I have learned about my condition are only through my research on the internet. All new stuff to me! What a way to be told such scarey news. My whole experience at the ultrasound/fna procedure was another nightmare. That's another story... None of it feels good to me, so looking for some sense of comfort in a very uncomfortable situation!
This is a bit long-winded! Thanks for being there. Debbie
