Unhappy Return of tumor after thyroid removal?


A dear and precious friend of mine who is 46 years old had his complete thyroid removed a few years ago as a result of a benign cyst. He has now developed a lump/mass in the same location? What are some reasons this would happen? I love him immensely and I am worried sick inside. Any insight as to the scope of possible reasons for this would be very helpful.

Thank You

Re: Return of tumor after thyroid removal?

It doesn't sound like you have anything to worry about, especially if the original pathology was benign. It could be lots of things, but one is, scar tissue, another is, if you aren't medicated to the level of supresssion, thyroid tissue can grow back. He can have an ultrasound, and they can check this out without too much difficulty.
