I have a significant family history of cancer, including thyroid (also brain, breast, colon, lymphoma). I also am a cancer survivor, following Hodgkins Lymphoma at age 19, with chemo and radiation treatment. Now at age 37, I recently had a thyroidectomy for papillary micro-carcinoma. The affected nodule was less than a centimeter in size. My surgeon has suggested that it therefor doesn’t require any follow-up (they didn’t remove or test any of my lymphnodes, and I haven’t had any scans). I am still concerned that there may be spread to my lymphnodes (or elsewhere). I am wondering if I should seek a second opinion??
