Hi, I am wondering if anyone felt any symptoms prior to their diagnosis of thyroid cancer? I was diagnosed with papillary cancer in aug/09, and had a TT on 9/2/09. I had pain in the front of my neck for a few months, which eventually pain went into my ears, and then constant ringing. Because of the pain I would feel my neck trying to figure out where the pain was originated from, found a lump, and from there onwards to the tests, resulting in my TT. Pathology should papillary cancer in the right and left lobes. My doctors believed that my symptoms were non related to the cancer, but right after my surgery, all my symptoms were gone. I understand it is uncommon for symptoms of thyroid cancer, but not unheard of. I am just wondering if anyone else experienced anything like this? I am 1 month post surgery, and have had none of the pain I was experiencing before the surgery, until a few days ago. Not sure what to think now. 2 senerio's - one its not related and coincidental, or two, they didnt get it all. I am not doing RAI, my doctors doesnt believe we need to. I am having my first thyroglubin test the end of the month.
