Still waiting on the results of my thyroid FNA (2 years after having had radiotherapy - which included the left side of my thyroid for a head and neck cancer in my parotid gland)
Does anyone know if they still do RAI if you've already had half the gland radiated? I'm sure my specialist knows what he's doing - and it's probably benign anyway (fingers crossed) but I was interested to know.
Also - any thoughts on the accuracy of FNA as a diagnostic tool? To what degree should I trust what it says?
