I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer. Now the other half of my thyroid will be removed
Hi, I’m Meshondra. I was diagnosed w/papillary thyroid cancer on 11/8. The right side of my thyroid was removed on 12/21. When the dr did the first surgery, he took out some extra fatty tissue because the lymph nodes in that area didn’t look right. I got the results of that pathology yesterday. There were several lymph nodes in that part of the tissue and cancer was found in 1 of those lymph nodes. Now the other half of my thyroid will be removed the end of this month or beginning of February. My follow-up with the surgeon is on the 15th so we will discuss further then.
