I was just recently diagnosed with Hürthle cell carcinoma. I am now on my second opinion on how it should be treated. I had my right thyroid removed on Aug 30, 2011. And it came back witha positive diagnosis of Hürthle cell carcinoma. The first surgeon said he wanted to take the wait and see approach for treatment. I did not like this so I sought out a second opinion and he reccomends surgery to remove the rest of my thyroid as well as radio active iodine.
I guess what I am looking for here is there anyone else who is at this point of treatment or may have just done it? I would like to have someone to talk to about it.
