Diagnosed 18 months ago with papillary thyroid cancer. Radical neck disection, removing thyroid, neck muscle tissue, and 29 lymph nodes in June 2010. Just finished my third round of I-131 in August 2011. But my thyroglobulin levels are trending up. 25 in October 2010, 24 in January, 25 in March 2011, 35 in June 2011, and finally 48.3 just last week November 2011.
What are my options? The total amount of radioactive iodine that I have ingested is 450. My doctor wants me to wait another 3 months and retake thyroglobulin test. Then he suggests a PET scan possibly.
What are the choices that I have, if any?
