This is my first post and I am hoping some of you have some information or thoughts to help me. I am 30 years old, and recently underwent a right thyroidectomy to remove a lesion. We did the removal since the FNA came back indeterminate. After the surgery the biopsy again came back as indeterminate, right now we are waiting to hear from a path lab on the mainland (I live in Hawaii). Also, I now have a 2nd surgery scheduled to remove the left side. And my drs say since they can't completely determine if the lesion if benign they want to treat it as if it is not benign. I am really scared and don't know what to do. Also, if it is CA I don't even know what kind it is? They say the lesion was an oncocytic tumor. Thru google this seems to be a more rare form. But there only seems to be three kinds of thyroid CA. So any help with the confusion would be greatly appreciated.
