Hi, I'm a newbee here. Really long story, I'll try to keep short. My wife was diagnosed in '99 at 31 of papillary thyca with hurthle cell, extrathyroidal extension and one node metastisis. Total TT and RAI 2x 100&250 because of persistant Tg of 9 to 14. All scans negative (US, CT, PET, WBS, BS, MRI) She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001 with good prognosis and our endo thought we could deal with Thyca later. We ended up with a Dx of Cowdens Syndrome (Genetic predisposition to Thyca, Brca, plus a few more). After 4 years Brca free and stable Tg of about 11 (couldn't find anything to cut out) we were given the OK to try to get pregnant and ran into fertility problems and given 5%-10% chance of getting pregnant. But after 2 years of trying miraculously made it only to find Tg jumps to 21 within 2 months. Endo is stumped and ordering more Ultrasound. What could this be, any ideas out there? This is worrying us greatly. Thanks.
