I have had one biopsy on my thyroid that was benign. Blood tests indicate that I have hyperthyroid. After a Thyroid Uptake Scan, my doctor said I have a nodule in the front and one on the right that are hot and need to be byopsied. He wants to do the biopsies a week apart. Neck byopsied hurt, why can't they be done at the same time? Would insurance require two separate byopsied?
I have had a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and am currently doing daily radiation, do I have to have two separate byopsied?
I know this sounds silly and other people have to go through a lot more, but two will hurt more and mean I have to wait longer to know if I have more cancer.
