        Thyroid Cancer

        Hello there, I was diagnosed with a large thyroid cyst early this year. Had the left side removed in March 2018, found papillary cancer and had the rest removed in May 2018. This surgery resulted in partial vocal cord paralysis and another procedure. Just was administered ROI this week. Mother of two children, one a graduating senior and an active six year old. Located in Fingerlakes Region of NYS.
