Hello to all,
I just signed on to this group, hoping to get some feedback on my situation. An ultrasound revealed multiple lumps in my thyroid, and a FNA was recommended. The soonest they could "fit me in" was 7 weeks after the referral. I understand that the chances of malignancy in thyroid lumps are very small, but presumably if there IS cancer, then early detection would be crucial. I asked my referring doctor who said this was a normal wait time, and not to worry. Still and all, if in the unlikely event it should be cancer, would it not have spread significantly after 7 weeks? Or perhaps thyroid cancer is so slow to spread that it doesn't matter? Should I push my doctor some more, or just accept her advice not to worry?
Thanks for any thoughts!
