I had squamus cell carcinoma. It had spread to my lymph nodes, I had a large tumor in my chest. A lesion on my arm and I was coughing up phlem all the time. It had spread all throughout my body. There are five choices, surgery, chemo, radiation, a total lifestyle change or death. I chose a total lifestyle change. It worked. We are breathing poisoned air, drinking poisoned water and food for the most part. How can anyone heal from cancer if you add more poison. Burn the flesh of a person or hack away at the symptom and not the cause. For most people cancer is a death sentence. I have talked to hundreds of people. I am surprised at how many will not change their bad and unhealthy habits even if it means death. Most people are unwilling to change their lives and look for excuses to keep on doing what has made them sick i the first place.

I was under the impressin that SCC skin cancer was highly treatable and curable.

It certainly has nothing to do with thyroid cancer.

You want to know something? As nice as doctors are, they are more concerned about the new car they just bought their wife then the health of their patients. Doctors and dentists do not and cannot make money on healthy patients. You figure it out. I did and I have regained my health. LOL

Nah, my doctors are more concerned about the new car they just bought their husband.  LOL

Marcelina,Papillary cancer is the most curable thyroid cancer, 98% patients live life time. I had same type of thyroid cancer as you have, and had  surgery to remove both side of thyroid 20 years ago. No any treatment, just on thyroid replacement medication since then. F/U with my Dr. every 6mo, Ultrasound every year after surgery. Check  TSH lever every three month.Now , I only see my Dr. Once a year , ultrasound every two year, TSH level check twice s year. I understand your concern. But don't worry to much. You shall be fine just like me. Make sure your TSH I normal since it two low or two high may affect your mood.
