I will be going in the next few weeks to see if the nodules in my thyroid have enlarged enough to biopsy and I am very nervous. I was diagnosed with stage 1 grade 2 chromophobe this year and had a partial nephrectomy. I see on here where people keep saying that it is rare for this cancer to return, but I also see where this type of cancer lives in the blood, or stays in you and can return later. I read stories about people with the same type, grade, and stage who have it return and I can't help but feel as though I am not "CURED". I know as far as cancer's go and illness in general I was lucky, and I am grateful. I am also, scared out of my mind that this will return. I was 29 when I was diagnosed. Can anyone tell me if it is common for this to return when found at a younger age, and if it is known to return in the thyroid?
