I am newly diagnosed, and so scared that this cancer has spread through my body. And it seems like it will be FOREVER before I have any answers. One question that I have is because the hot nodule is functioning in some way, it is more likely to have blood flowing through it and thus moving cancer cells? I know that is one of the things that they look for when they remove the thyroid. Anyone that can share any stories that would get me through this waiting period for surgery/pathology, or help me formulate some questions for my doctors, would be very appreciated!
