I was just dx with Pappilary Thyroid Cancer yesterday after a FNA Biopsy.
This year has been rough... BC, then Multiple Sclerosis, and now, yay more dxs. *eye roll*
Biopsy substantiates my previous historical clinical dx (for past 8 years) of Hashimoto's Disease, along with the newly dxd Papillary Thyroid Cancer.
I'm just crossing my fingers that when I have my thyroidectomy that the pathology comes back ONLY thyroid cancer, without any signs of BC METs. It's rare, but it does happen. There's a huge fear too that it may be Lymphoma, sipmly because my brother died from it and well, with my luck, one of those two rarities sounds like my kind of luck.
I meet with my Thyroid Surgeon on Nov 11 to go over the Preop Plan.
Will be following this thread going forward.
Best of luck to all the fellow BC & TC warriors.
****My nodule (Right Lobe) was found in 07/2019 via US. Measured 7 x 8 x 6 mm. Solid. Hypoechoic. Smooth margins. No growth in 2 months. Labs were all "in range" regarding my TSH, Calcitonin, CEA, etc. If not high risk [due to my family history (3 siblings with TC and my own hx of BC and RADs)] they would have just made me wait for 6 more months without a FNA and just monitor. So thankful I told them I was not feeling well, and continued to pursue and be my own advocate.****
