ThyCa 6 years ago....now...mulit microcalcifications in mammogram....Worry???
I was diagnosed with thyca in 2004 and had a total thyroidectomy with RAI. I am 43 yrs old, and today I had my annual mammogram. The tech said, "would you like to see?"...Sure. I asked, "what are all those spots"? "microcalcifications"...."oh, those are NORMAL right?". Well, most are, but some can be very worrisome. END of discussion. So, of course I come home and read a ton of research. Seems that I may have reason to worry. Thoughts? Suggestions? Trying not to panic.
Thanks for your response. Had labs done on Thursday. Don't have the results of those yet. I had papillary thyca. I haven't been suppressed in 2.5 years. No research on iodine supplementing. Just figured I got enough through salt, etc. I'll report back with lab numbers when I have them.
