Hi Everyone: I am from the Ovarian Cancer board. I recently went to the doctors office for a cold and the PA said she noticed I have some swelling around my thyroid area. I had noticed about a year ago I had a little bit of a bump there but the doctor told me it was fatty deposit. Now I have just finished chemo and my blood markers for the ovarian cancer shows that I am remission. I am waiting for my scan results which we expect to show remission. I was in the bathroom this morning looking at the lump in my thyroid area and it appears that it is bigger than it was a year ago. I am also 30 pounds heavier too so if it is fat deposits than maybe that explains it. You all know what is going through my head right? The other thing is I have been getting regular check ups and the Oncologist pushes around on my neck and collarbone area to see if any lymphnodes are swollen. He said he could not feel anything. So maybe I am freeking out for nothing. What are the symtoms of thyroid cancer? The other thing that is bothering me is I just had my scan on Thursday. On Friday there was a missed call from my Oncologist office on my cell. I have a brand new cell and did not set up my voice mail yet and there was no message on the phone. I guess I am looking for some reassurance.....
