I had a US on my thyroid results came back and now he wants me to see a surgeon should I be worried my US says a 1.2 x 1.5 mixed echo nodule in the mid to upper pole right lobe with internal calcifications noted peripherally and incresed blood flow throughout it also says it is a complex vasculas nodule ?
I don't know much about medullary carcinoma, but did have a TT.
It has been 15yrs and no thyroid issues. Yes, you will deal with the "getting your levels correct" and it will take time, but hang in there. Just remember patience, patience & more patience...Keep all dr appts. and make sure your levels get checked. Don't just have them do the thyroid, make sure they check your calcium and & Vit D, for some reason people with thyroid problems always lack in these.
they already checked my calcium it was ok my calcition which is bad is to be 8 and mine is 442 which is not good the hope is to save my parathyroid glands if not I will have to take vitamin d the rest of my life. this cancer likes to spread even if it is little they said so they need to get it all.
HI! I hope everything goes well tomorrow! I was diagnosed with Medullary Thyroid cancer and have had a partial thyroidectomy in September. They had trouble with the biopsy- it came back benign on the table, then follicular variant papilary, then they sent it to Juan Rosai who diagnosed Medullary cancer with small papillary collision tumor. I see the endo on Nov.2 to discuss what to do next with surgery and screening out MEN syndrome ect. I may be going to Washington University in St. Louis to see what they say about treatment options. As far as pathology goes it already went to the top. But I don't know much about treatment options. What info do you have? Let's keep in touch since we are in similar situations. I will be with you tomorrow in spirit. Blessings!
