    0.2mm is just too small to tell anything, or to be scared of anything. Just keep following it up.

      You just need to compartmentalize a bit in order to keep cheering up patients.

        Thanks. What the experience has shown is that knowing where your original tumor is stored and for how long is key if things go south. So besides doing ultrasounds and Tg measurements, having that knowledge enables a through genetic testing if you ever need one.

          Tg level has never went to zero and was raising at almost every measurement, so there was some indication indeed.  TSH was suppresed by design; hormone intake is higher than I would need, in order to keep TSH undetectable and make my mets not too excited.  Tg level has now decreased, likely due to LDN treatment I'm doing (Low Dose Naltrexone). So far the progression can be called a remission.  Becau...

            I had a full thyroidectomy in 2012, and only in 2017 the lung metastases were large enough to appear on CT.

              The changes are within the error margin, so I would say your testes are stable. The two dimensions are too close to say whether is taller than wide or wider than tall.

                The problem with urine PH is that it's inespecific, meaning that it can be low without cancer and can be high with cancer.  That said, in full disclosure mine is 5.0, and I do have cancer (stage IV - metastases). But it's been at this exact value for years, even with my tumor marker going down... so at least in my case, it doesn't seem to be related to tumor activity.

                    What you already started noticing is that one of the hardest challenges in managing cancer is managing your emotions. Besides doing what you are already doing regarding the mass per se, time to start working on your mind and soul.

                      While some nodules/tumor locations could case this, the most common issue relating thyca to hoarse voice is when the vocal cords / surrounding nervers are damaged by the procedure removing the thyroid.  Since this is appearing years after the procedure, it seems quite unlikely to be related. The thyroid bed is easily accessible to ultrasound imaging, so if you haven't done any US as control, it might be worth d...

                      I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in 2012, had 2 hemithyroidectomies and was hopeful that I would make a full recovery. After radioactive iodine there was still traces of Thyroglobulin with no findings in PET/CT, until end of 2016, when I was diagnosed with lung metastases. Genomics testing indicate NRAS mutation, and let's see what can be done to fight this formidable foo.
                      After receiving LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) and High Dosage Vitamin D, the exponential growth curve has turned to a slow decline, showing incredible results of this very simple, cheap and effective treatment.
                      Now adding alpha-lipoic acid to the combo, but it's soon to say if it helps or not.
