Hack & Slash or Wait & See
My endocrinologist called when I was in a meeting. His message confirms that the biopsy came back benign. Also, my thyroglobulin results came back and are stable (i.e., not signaling any increased thyroid cancer activity). So, either the small tumor in my neck has been for a long time or it is new. He recommends monitoring it for the next six months. Alternatively, I can have surgery, though the benefit from the surgery may not outweigh the risks of surgery. I am meeting next Wednesday with a neck surgeon to get his opinion.
