I am 20 years post near total thyroidectomy/RAI ablation for papillary thyroid cancer. I just found out that my last thyroglobulin level (with TSH suppressed) was 23.0. I am now scheduled for a neck ultrasound. After doing a lot of research, I've pretty much figured out that a level that high has to be indicative of a recurrence. Am I correct in that assumption or is there any other possible reason it would be that high? Has anyone been in a similar situation? Thanks in advance.
