Good Evening Everyone. I was diagnosed with Papillary Carcinoma. I caught it early enough to move to preventing it from coming. I am going to have radiation. I was told that this type of cancer is the best one of the cancers to have. While I understand that this is rare, and not a lot of information is on this. Is this cancer not able to spread?
