I have Thyroid C-cell tumors

This week I found out I may have Thyroid C-cell tumors. Most likely caused by Byetta, I am 53, male, don't smoke, chew or around second hand smoke. I have no family history if cancer. I have a slightly hoarse voice,  I do cough for now reason in the moring, then some time in the evening, I get tired, yadda yadda... just dont have dry skin nor loosing hair.


From my understand this is a rare cancer. All test so far have pointed into the directions. What I don't understand my Dr knew my calsium (?) and the all the T levels have been cliaming. Next step will be a Cat scan, and biopsy.

I am lost here,,, Does any one know the chances of getting the Thyroid C-cell tumors are? like example 1 in 100,000 or 1 in a million? I am just trying to figure out what to do,,,,,,
