Just Wondering.....

Hi everyone. Diagnosed with Hashimoto's 1 year ago. Put on 50 mcgs. of levothyroxin. Everything has been going well and now my voice is starting to sound hoarse. The doctor noticed it as soon as I said hi but let it go after she felt my thyroid. Should I be worrried? I think I read to much and so I am imagining all kinds of bad things. Is it a given that hoarseness means cancer with Hashi's? I am really scared about that. I have also read that having a hysterectomy along with Hashimoto's already has a 34% chance of getting cancer and I have had one...yikes

Re: Just Wondering.....

Ask for an ultrasound of your thyroid and some labs; free T3, free T4. The chances of cancer are very slight but you may need an increase in your meds.
