Hi there!

Medullary thyroid cancers often run in families and would require expensive surgery; +/- radiotherapy +/- chemotherapy (high risk cases) for adequate treatment. Also often they occur as a part of syndromes where active search for other possible tumours in the body is indicated. It would be best to discuss the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with the treating doctor.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

Yes, I am aware of this. I am a "sporadic" medullary cancer patient and looking for others who have this type of cancer.
