      So I have learned again today... thanks for sharing your knowledge. Stinks that we need to know any of this :( I am not on any thyroid meds. The only time I took any was when a functional doctor discovered an elevated Reverse T3 and I did a round of T3 only. The Reverse T3 normalized and has stayed that way. The rest of the time I was told: "all the numbers are in range you are fine." I finally insiste...

        That sound like a plan and I admire your great attitude which will help you with the task at hand...Killing the enemy. I am rooting for you. I have learned that a super low TSH is best to discourage ThyCa?  I wish JUST ONE of the many doctors I saw knew that. My TSH levels don't look so 'normal" anymore. 2.10   0.18   3.30   2.34   2.06   0.49   2.24...

          I agree it is a mixed bag. The good outweighs the bad. Early diagnosis is key to many people's survival. Thanks for the reassurance on the FNA as I am 3 days out from my first one. I was fretting about it but decided I needed to know what if anything is growing in there. Then I can make a more informed decision going forward.I do hear, what I feel are too many cases about TT surgery only to later discover t...

            So true. I feel that there are many nodules found due to increased preemptive screenings. The question becomes is that a good thing or a bad, thing. Catch something early or overdiagnose something that may never cause an issue. Meanwhile, I am calming down a bit from the initial report. My latest question is whether an FNA could potentially cause more trouble by disturbing the nodule?

              Thanks for the advice and practical perspective! You are correct. I am truly sorry that things have changed for the worse in your illness. I do hope things improve.

                Thank you for the encouragement. I sure hope to get lucky with this. I live rurally but still?! I am on a cancel list. So often we are told we have anxiety and need to reduce stress. Of course, we do because navigating the medical system and waiting so long for everything is stressful.I hope you are well!

                  What type of cancer are you treating with the LDN? I was on it for a few years for Hashimoto's and went off at Doctor's suggestion. Now it appears I likely have thyroid cancer. I wonder if I should go back on before all the testing and Dr. appointments or wait.

                    I am currently waiting for an FNA after an ultrasound showed a "highly suspicious" nodule. Small, under 1 cm but all the markers of cancer. Hypoechoic, calcifications, irregular margins, increased vascularity, possible extension :( Met with a surgeon and she said 80% it is cancer.My question is why do we all read that most nodules are not cancer, yet in the groups and forums it seems most end up b...

                      I am so happy for you and I hope that the progress in continuing. I was on LDN for a few years and went off at the Doctor's suggestion to take a break. Fast forward and I am newly diagnosed with a suspicious nodule. Not sure if I should go with LDN or CBD oil or both?!
