  1. Thyroid Disease General Discussion Forum
    Okay, I am trying to decide whether or not to opt for thyroid removal. I currently take 100 mcg levothyroxine. An ultrasound found 2 nodules over 1cm. However, when I went in for a biopsy, both the radiology tech and the doctor agreed there were no discrete nodules, but that the thyroid is...
  2. Newbie Introductions - Don't be bashful!
    Newbie here.....found this board while research my US results. Lots of great threads here so I thought I would join and ask a few questions. A few weeks ago I discovered a lump on my front right side of my neck. Naturally went around the house feeling everyone else's throat to see if they had...

  4. Thyroid Cancer Survivor Message Boards
    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...

    Hi all, I write this from the ICU. my TT on 10/31 went perfectly, pain is minimal, and my incision looks great.

  7. Thyroid Surgery Discussion Forum
    I've been searching the boards but can't find a lot of info, maybe someone can chime in... How much does a typical TT cost? Anyone have an idea? My insurance company couldn't guess and said don't bother asking the hospital, as there are many variables. She guessed $25K and my heart dropped. I...
  8. Thyroid Surgery Discussion Forum
    It seems years since my biopsy last Monday, but today my ENT said that my bigger nodule is atypical and he recommends at least taking that lobe. My two nodules on the right had some cells in there (hurthle and something else that are 25-40% cancer) but basically inconclusive. He offered to do...

    I recently had a successful partial thyroidectomy. Since the recovery I noticed that the skin on my neck is not as taut. It is not sagging of course, but I notice its looseness when I turn my head. I realized that it is caused by the nodule stretching the skin. I am hoping it is temporary...

    Hi all, This is actually my first post on these boards. :) I had been lurking for a while as I was diagnosed with Graves' in September and while I had clearly been symptomatic for a while, the officially diagnosis freaked me out as I had no idea what to expect. I should be honest that I read a...

    Im writing this 4 days post-op. I had a right lobe removed. Nodules were benign. Surgery took about 1 1/2 hours. Tip: I never accept anything to relax me before a surgery because they make you weepy, say things that allows everyone to have a good laugh at your expense, and slows down your...
