hurthel cell carcinoma
Hi, I am new to message boards but curious for feedback. Almost 1 year ago I had half my thyroid out with a tumor that supposedly was benign. Turned out to be minimally invasive hurthle cell carcinoma. The ENT who did my surgery and an oncologist that I got a second opinion from, both advised me to not proceed with a full thyroidectamy.
They told me, being minimally invasive that I don't have to worry about it spreading to other body parts besides the neck. They said to moniter with ultrasounds for 5 years and if any growths in my neck then proceed. I had left it at that and for some reason now I am having some doubts.
My doctors told me not to believe the info online that EVERYONE should proceed with full treatment right away. Any opinions?
