Total or partial removal of thyroid?
My 26 year old daughter, whose mother has Hashimoto's, has a Huerthle cell neoplasm on the right side of the thyroid and another nodule on the left side that by itself is not a concern to the doctors.  So she faces the decision of total thyroid removal or removal of just the right side with the neoplasm.  We've been told that there is roughly a 75% chance that the neoplasm is benign and thus, if she elects for partial removal, she has a good chance of not requiring a second surgery to remove the other side right away.  But what are the chances that at some point in her life, the left side will develop a neoplasm too, thus requiring a second surgery?
