Can anyone help me ? I have papillary cancer and had my thyroid removed and lymp noides . I have to go for iodine treatment on July 7th . I had to sign a release that I am aware that I my get T.B. from the treatment or develope another form of cancer . I am very scared that I am going to die of cancer . Why would they suject me to such a risky prosesure if they didnt feel that I still may have cancer ? I have read web sites that say ten years is the average time to live ,another says twenty and yet another says It is completly curable . What is Right ? Is there anyone who beet this ? I dont want to die of cancer . I belieave there is know doctor that would tell a patant you have ten years to live untill his time was close . I cant deal with the tought of dying . Has anyone survived more then ten years ? Has anyone beet this ?
