Thank you for replying to my message/question. To answer your inquiry; I am having the other side removed in a few weeks. The first surgery had a simple recovery and I hope for the same from the complete removal. The tumor measured 1.9 X 1.7 X 1.5 cm. I understand that this is fairly large. Have you ever heard of someone being diagnosed with both types of cancer in the same tumor?
On the scale of thyroid cancers, papillary is the most curable, followed by follicular. The ones you DON'T want to get are metastatic and anaplastic. Metastatic and anaplastic grow quickly and are hard to cure. At least they are out. Are you going to have the other side removed? How big were the tumors?
