        Please; make sure you get your rTSH to measure your thyrodean cells.

          Yes.   And the efficacy of ethanol eblation on cancerous thyroid tumors should be studied as well, so no one ever has to lose a thyroid again. thyroid cancer utopia.

            Sorry you're choosing to leave.  You're not posting anything here that we don't already know from long term experience, and I'm sorry you do not realize this.  I'm sorry you choose to put the cart waaay ahead of the horse, when you don't even have a thyroid cancer diagnosis. Good luck to you on your path.  Wishing you a benign Dx, and if not; a good prognosis.  Aloha!

                I can lend you my magic 8 ball, if you want to ask it.  LOL  :D :D :D Even if you do have thyroid cancer, it's usually very survivable, curable, and thriveable.  I've been on this site for close to 10 years and tons of people come here; worry, worry, worry, and then we never read another peep from them again. Is it possible you do not have thyroid cancer: Yes. Is it possible you do:  Yes. You...

                    What's a TC?  And I'm pretty certain the only way to know if cells are avid for iodine is to dose them with RAI and use nuclear medicine imaging.

                      Those without thyroid and on TSH suppression (like me, and the majority) also need blood a few times a year to monitor levels.  But TSH stabilizes once the correct dose is found.  That can take some years but it's totally doable.  Your body needs time to stop looking for the thyroid and depend on the oral dose.
