My friend has been diagnosed to have thyroid cancer and histopath findings shows micropapilary cancer with colloid goiter and one node involvement. She's still young with 3 children and is depressed because her voice is very hoarse. The capsule of the cancer has been very adherent to her laryngeal nerves and has to be scraped. Her doctor has told her that it will get worse and be better after 3-6 months. For the meantime what will she do? Does she need a speech therapist to regain her voice. Her work involves a lot of talking and she's afraid not being able to work. Please advise us and help us. Thank you so much!
