Hi, I was diagnosed with Papillary Carcinoma in September 2000 and had my thyroid removed. The doctors found that the cancer had spread to about 5 lymph nodes in my neck. I had the initial radioactive iodine uptake and have had one scan since then. This past year I developed an enlarged lymph node right under my jaw. I am always aware of it and it worrys me. I had an ultrasound done at my last doctor's visit and he said "we'll keep an eye on it". Has anyone else had the cancer spread to the nodes and then found enlargement in other nodes? If so, what tests did your doctor perform? Thanks for your thoughts and good luck to all.
