Just had a yearly blood test for follow up to papilary thyroid cancer I had three years ago. Had my entire thyroid removed June 2003 and went through one radiation treatment and scan. I have yearly blood test to assess the thyroid levels. The last two years, my levels have been low but this year, my test result came back at 4? Does anyone know what that means? My doctor sent me a note advising me of this and thinks I should have an ultrasound of my neck done by a specialist. I thought I was out of the cancer woods but now starting to think otherwise - does this mean that the cancer could be back?
