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.

All the best with your appointment this week. I look forward to hearing what you learn and what option you choose, @mjay
