After my recent 5millicurie dose of I-131 and WBS we've concluded I am no longer avid for iodine. To confirm that the nodules in my lungs are thyroid cancer and not something else, I will be undergoing a surgical biopsy with a cardio-thoracic surgeon. Haven't met with that specialist as yet so don't know all that it entails. Anyone out there ever have this done? The nodules in my lungs are not in spots that are conducive to just sticking a needle in from the side. On the plus side, perhaps the surgeon will remove one entire nodule rather than just taking stabs at it.
