*Any* thyroid cancer is bad but follicular thyroid cancer is treatable and a 2mm size is treatable.

Did you get these findings from a surgery pathology report?

follicular is treatable; are you being treated--are they going to remove it, partially or your whole thyroid?  Removing the whole thing is standard practice now even when its only part of it not working.  This reduces recurrence.  Is it benign or malignant?  Have you had a biopsy?  Push for this!!!
