safetyguy: thyroid cancer seems to be very commonly associated with breast cancer. I am just waiting for the surgical consult. Tirads 4 are still very likely benign. But your nodule at 9 cm is very large. Are you having symptoms. Regardless of biopsy results, they main recommend removal of your thyroid. It is overwhelming to have both to worry about, but your thyroid presents only a minor challenge compared to breast cancer.
