    Hi all, I can officially say I'm a cancer survivor, although it was very tiny. I had a 1mm spot in my 1.7cm nodule, and a 5mm spot in my 1.2cm nodule. Both papillary. Both Endos and my surgeon agree this is so small I don't need RAI. I tend to agree, and I know people have different views and...

    Hello. Here's my story in a nutshell: I have a complex nodule on the left lone on my thyroid. My first biopsy was inconclusive due to the lack of cells collected. I pushed for a second biopsy, and it was frustratingly indeterminate. The pathologist's report indicated that he only found...

    I want to start by saying "HELLO!!!" I've been reading a lot on this forum for over a month since I was told my TSH was .006. That alone was frustrating.

    does anyone else have this issue? I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2007 and had my surgery to remove both lobes and 6 lymph nodes. However, they were concerned one might have been missed and I was never fully ablated. In future radiation scans, the lymph node never showed up. Since...
