Papillary Thyroid Cancer

Posted by roya81 @roya81, Nov 29, 2022

Hi, my husband has just been diagnosed by Papillary Thyroid Cancer. Anyone with some info I can use? I’m sick worried.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Thyroid Cancer Support Group.

hi royal 81.
i have been diagnosed with the same. now, its a hurry up and get blood test, vocal cord checked ( voice has changed), ultrasound on the neck, and soft tissues. so overwhelmed, so fully understand your situation. also the endocrinologist wants me to meet up with the surgeon so he can explain this and that and to tell you the truth, i thought she was really going to explain it all and then of course the one who does the surgery. but, that's the way the cookie crumbles for now……….thing is, i am up in age.

Thank you for your reply, @lilyann ! And, sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I’m sure you’ll be fine. Nader (my husband) has already had his ultrasound and biopsy results. The plan is a chest CT and thyroidectomy in a month time. The surgeon said it’s a non-agressive type, treatable and hopefully curable. My knowledge is very limited so would really like to know about people’s experiences.
