Small papillary thyroid cancer
After my parathyroid surgery (2 weeks ago) a tiny pin point papillary cancer was found in the tissue removed with the parathyroid gland. I was told this type of cancer may never grow and can be monitored with ultra sounds every 6 months or yearly. Has anyone else had this happen? Is it safe to monitor or should I just have a total thyroidectomy? Any input would be most appreciated. I am 67 and nervous. Thanks everyone!
