Re: Tell me your thyroid cancer story.. please

My doctor felt a lump on my thyroid and sent me to an endocrinologist. He did a biopsy right in the office (involves a needle going into your neck - not as bad as you think) and when no fluid came out, he sent me for an MRI. Although I had a heavy family history of thyroid cancer so we pretty much knew then. You need a biopsy. You can go right back to work - you won't even need an aspirin.
