I grew up in an South East coast community and had many years on the beach. Once I moved away I had several years of frequent tanning bed use. In your MedHelp forums history have you seen anyone comment on the use of tanning beds/sun exposure and the possible connection to thyroid cancers and/or other thyroid disorders? What are your thoughts? Brief medical history: I was diagnosed with ThyCa (Papillary) in 2007 with TT in June 07 and I-131 dose in Aug. 07. Currently taking .150mcg Synthroid with no major issues other than sporatic memory laspes and dry hair.
