Going for a Biopsy-Wish Me Luck/Prayers
Several weeks ago, at a routine exam, my doctor felt a "nodule' on my thyroid. I went to an Endocrinologist, who sent me for tests. Yesterday I got the results of the sonogram. She says my thyroid 'Looks like a bag of walnuts. There are seven nodules-2 small, 5 large. The largest one is half the size of your thyroid." I'm scheduled for a biopsy next Tuesday. She told me the procedure is uncomfortable. But she also told me thyroid cancer is very treatable, the "most curable kind". But I'm terrified. My mind is racing. The nodules may be benign, but if even one cancer cell is found, I'll need to have my thyroid removed. I had a successful kidney transplant over a year ago, so I'm taking immunosuppressant medications. I'm in a panic. Please offer me some kind words, prayers.
