Hi! Just wondering if there are any other Medullary Thyroid Cancer survivors out there. I was diagnosed at 23 and I am a 50 yr. old female. I had 2 thyroid surgeries and was sent to MD Anderson Cancer Hospital for a bilateral neck dissection (3rd operation) followed by 6 weeks radiation back in 1983. I had localized lympth node involvement. I still have elevated calcitonin but with yearly followup no spread has ever been found. I am extremely thankful for that. I thank God every day for my recovery and the wonderful doctors at MD Anderson!
Since Medullary Thyroid Cancer is fairly rare, I would love to hear from others with same condition. Thanks! :)
