I have not been on the boards for a while, long story, but my college daughter was in a serious accident and I have been living out of state so I could be close to her, I have been gone for over a month and a half. She was riding her bike in Cambridge, Mass in the bike lane, and was "doored." This means that someone opened a car door into the lane of bike/car traffic, hitting my daughter. She was thrown off the bike into oncoming traffic, and hit by another car. Thankfully she has no brain or spinal damage, but has serious damage to her hip/leg/pelvis and s pretty serious oncussion. So my stress levels have been through the roof. Which scares me.
I came home because I had an appointment with a new endocrinologist (Which took 3 months to get.) On my original PET scan prior to surgery for UPSC last December something showed up in the thyroid. I went for an ultrasound in January, after surgery for the uterine cancer and prior to treatments, it showed 3 small masses, I went to an endocrinologist, who told me not to worry, just repeat the ultrasound scan in 6 months. Which I did, but decided to go to an endocrinologist who is associated with the same hospital system as my gyn. oncologist after the second ultrasound. She gave me the news that she suspects cancer due to what she has seen on both ultrasounds and the pet scan. I was completely floored by this. She does not think it is at all related to the UPSC, as it doesn't usually spread to the thyroid. I could rant about the first doctor, but I have to let it go.
I am scheduled for a needle biopsy on December 22. I found out last December about the uterine cancer. Has anyone else had thyroid cancer as well as uterine cancer?
