I am more fortunate than many as I did not know about the cancer until after it was already removed from my body. Tests on my removed thyroid found cancer. Not an aggressive form; from what they tell me it is one that generally stays in the thyroid. That is good news. I had my thyroid out so I am cancer free. I will have to take a radioactive pill to kill any bits of the thyroid they may have missed.
I will admit I am a bit nervous about the pill. I have heard I will have to avoid contact with other people and pets for a couple of days. Not completely, but no prolonged contact. I can avoid people, but my kitties are not going to like me hiding from them.
I believe when this is all finished there is really no chance of this cancer returning. That in itself is a blessing.
