I have just been diagnosed with a tumor in the
left side of my thyroid. I;m going for a 2nd
opinion. They want to remove the left side.

What happens when they take out half a thyroid?
Does you metabolism change. Do you gain or lose
weight. Is a goiter the same as a tumor? There
is only a 20% chance it is cancer in my case so
I am not worried about that. It is not inflamed
does not hurt and is barely noticeable. How did
you find yours?
