high thyroglobin levels and negative scans

I had thyroid cancer 5 years ago along with a total thyroidectomy. Thyroglobin levels have been undetectable until now. My thyroglobin is at 89. The doctor ordered testing, pet scan, WBS, ultrasound and mri. All of these tests have been completely negative but thyroglobin levels are still high. Next step is an ablation. I am very confused and wondered if this situation has happened to any one else. Not sure what to think about the whole thing.

Hi there!

Though recurrence without any identifiable lesion is an uncommon situation it is not particularly rare. I would agree with your doctor in deciding ablation as the next step. Hope this should take care of the elevated levels.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
