Has anyone had radiofrequency ablation for a thyroid nodule? If so, was it cancerous or benign, what size? Thank you

Has anyone had alcohol injection into a thyroid nodule? I understand they do this for small nodules, but not sure if it’s for benign nodules only. Thank you.

I believe @traceyjhp has had a thyroid ablation and may be able to share her experiences with you.

@mjay, I noticed that you ask about RFA and ethanol ablation for thyroid cancer testing. Are you researching the different diagnostic procedures? Which is being suggested for you?

Thank you, Colleen. I am headed to Mayo next week and will find out what my options are then, but wanted to be aware of my options ahead of my visit.
