My wife had her papillary cancer lump removed with her thyroid about 3 weeks ago. It was growing on her windpipe. The surgeon said to do external beam radiation, the endocrinologist said it should be considered, but to get another opinion. I have friends who are docs, so I'm getting names, but I'd like to hear from anyone that was in the same situation (the cancer was growing beyond its usual containment). Did you have external radiation (in addition to the iodine of course).
