I am going to be having surgery since Hurthle cells were found on my biopsy. Haven't had the appointment with the surgeon yet.
I read here somewhere that this cancer is slow-growing and aggressive. Isn't that contradictory?
I have osteoporosis. If this is malignant and I need treatment, it sounds like your TSH level gets so low that it hurts your bones? Below .4.
If this is so rare, there are probably no specialists in Denver who have alot of experience with this. Should I consider going to MD Anderson or the Mayo Clinic?
I couldn't get an appoinyment to see the surgeon until a month after the biopsy. I have a 10 day overseas trip planned one month after I see the surgeon. Would it be wise to cancel and have this taken care of asap? I'm thinking the doctor will tell me to go.
