My Radioigy Oncolist has orded two Thyrogen injections and then tracer and scan for me because the last thyroid scan I had last month showed a area of possible residual thyroid tissue. My Endo said that I didnt need this but she would go with what the oncolist said. My question is because cancer was found on the right side but not on the left side, but its the left side that the residual tissue was found, could this tissue have cancer in it? Anyway I'm waiting for the Thyrogen to be available now and I will have the treatment.
