I didn't see her report. This friend is going through so much right now and they found this nodule by accident. She was just treated for a brain annurysm (SP?) NOw her sonogram report shows a solitary complex cystic nodule. I pray it isn't cancer. Mine was solitary, dominant complex nodule. I was hoping with the word cystic thrown in there, it might be good news. Semantics.
I'm guessing that, in light of her aneurysm, that surgery is not an option right now. She will probably be a candidate for "suppression therapy" with thyroid hormones *carefully* controlled to watch her blood pressure.
Like they say, this is a slow growing cancer (if it even *is* cancer) so there is time for her and her doctors to watch the nodule.
