I had a total thyroidectomy and neck resection in July 2011 follwed by RAI treatment. in September of 2012 I had a full body scan which was negative for cancer. About the same time and ever since I have had neck pain (on the opposite of where I had the neck resection) much like I had when the thyroid cancer was intitally detected. In Janaury I had an ultrasound which aslo came back negative. I have been seeing a chiropractor for the neck paint but the pain persists. I will be having an MRI this week. My endocrinologist does not think the neck pain is from cancer, my chiropractor does not think the neck pain is a musculo-skeltal problem. I am not sure where to go from here. I am presuming the MRI will come back negative. Does anyone know of any other diagnositc tests for recurrent thyroid cancer?
