I had a lump in my Thyroid a few years ago. The biopsy showed it was benign. It grew fairly rapidly so I had it removed with half of my thyroid. I don't have to take medication as the remaining half has taken over well.

I was told that malignant cancer of the thyroid is pretty rare.



My brother and sister have both had very serious cancer and survived so I was pretty scared.....like you.



I'm sure everything will be OK for you..good luck :)

Relax---------10 years ago I had my thyroid removed due to multiple toxic nodules that could not be treated any other way. They were non cancerous, but even if they had been, thyroid cancer is generally treatable and non fatal. The operation is no worse than a tonsilectomy. I take a daily pill that replaces the thyroid hormone.

just saw my doctor this morning with another blood test done, its over-active again.



I have had an underactive one for years, been on medication, levothryoxine, but recent blood tests show its over-active, been off meds now 6 months and it still shows over-active.



really really frightened here, he even said it might be cancer, he has no idea, but he said why should he lie to me?

help!

Odie, I hope you'll be OK. Perhaps it's just a matter of getting the meds right. Doesn't overactive make you lose weight? If so, ask your doc how I can make mine Overactive!!:D:wah: Seriously, I hope the doc has good news for you. We're here if you need us.

Like my doctor said, I have to tell you the truth, he said whenever you see a specialist.......it could be, and I have been told that before for other things...........its something they always will check for.



also read up on it, and is treatable if caught soon, but trying to remember when I had my last blood test........before the last 6 months of doing them.





thanks, will keep you posted.

ahhhh thanks 911! The meds apparently had nothing to do with it, its only over-active on one part, the other part if under-active?

Yeah, loosing weight would be sooooooooo good!

funny you should say that, just finished reading up on symptoms today, memory loss, fatigue, mood swings, crying, no longer enjoying life including family and friends, feelings of doubts about yourself etc................all can be symptoms.

Sorry to jump in here late..

I too have a under active thyroid - I've chosen a natural med called Armour

Any woman close to or is going thru Menopause - get your thyroid checked.

If your gaining weight or puffy/thick - get your thyroid checked.

and yes, thyroid cancer runs in my family.

You don't want this gland/organ removed if at all possible

it's very important.

Just a curious question here - all with thyroid trouble, did you have alot of sore throats/strep throat as a child.??

I did, that's why I ask - my own little survey..??

good luck to all

Had half of my thyroid removed a couple of years back as there was a 'lump' which grew very quickly. Not cancerous and haven't had to take meds luckily.....funnily enough I did get a lot of problems with my tonsils until my early 20s....never put the 2 together though.



Anway....good luck ladies....I'm sure everything will turn out OK.

I had alot of trouble with sore & strep throat as a child - always sick.

I had my tonsils removed @ 19 yrs old and wanted to die.

I wouldn't ever recommend any one to have their tonsils removed as a adult.

I have always felt for myself, there was a connection with the tonsil problem and my thyroid. perhaps due to the poisons/infections.

Most DR.'s won't/don't cross reference with menopause & thyroid. All women

should have their thyroid checked @ menopause.

Alot of women will have the thyroid swell before they find out/verify they're pregnant.

true fact

god no! not at my age, no pregy here!:wah:

it was always inactive......but a reading came up that one is now over-active, not the actually thyoid, the pituary gland in the brain, both connected.

Doc even said it may be cancer when I asked him.

plus I do not remember when my last blood test was before this started 6 months ago..........so if it is cancer, may not still be in early stages.

Well, your definetly on top of the change - and yes the earlier the better.

along with all the regular symptoms with thyroid what brought you to the DR? a regular check up? or a symptom change as weight loss - dizzy - sick - heart racing - etc.?

I hope it's not cancer - hopefully this will be something that can be controlled with meds.?

Aren't you glad your not Pregnant

I'm glad I'm not - I have no gear.

Hi Patty; I had just decided it was time to get it checked............I have always felt fatigued and run down, not sure even if the pills did any good over the years or it could have just been from stress...........



I have gear, it was put out of commision years ago.

Well she was FURIOUSs at my doctor saying I have cancer! She said where on earth did he get that from?

She said with the thyroid it quite often goes up and down.......(the readings) mine now is a over-active, so she wants it checked out again in 5 weeks, as of February and going off levothryoxine, it has been coming down nicely............if there are any problems with the blood result then........she will look into it more.

awesome specialist, did complete history, tons of questions, swallowing test with water, heart rate, weight, blood pressure etc........she is really nice and knows what she is doing!

but.................because of a blood reading on my tests, she think now I may have diabetics....so in 5 weeks will get that blood work done.......hell, have to drink some **** and wait 2 hours and bood tests again.

have I mentioned I have no patience for waiting!:-5

thanks everyone for the kind words and help and guidance, it means alot.

hi guys,

i had my thyroid glands removed last june and it was the best thing that ever happened to me !!

dont want to worry any of you but my problems have been going on since the early 80's !!

i used to get migrains that lasted for days and sometimes had me bed ridden.in 1989 i had three PARA THYROID glands removed because i was producing too much calcium and i was poisoning myself :eek::eek:.

this cured it for some time then about 10yrs ago, i started producing kidney stones.

ive spent the last ten years being scanned , xrayed, blood tested and ive peed in more sample bottles than any one can imagine. :o

i was so tired all the time i virtually gave up on life. i woke up every morning being violently sick.

the op made me lose my voice for two months but that was the only draw back and its taken about three months for me to recover properly.

now im looking for things to do instead of collasping into a chair or my bed. ive had a couple of weekends away, shopping, sight seeing and a party or two thrown in for good measure ( i couldnt tolerate alchohol either ) all that would have had me running for cover just a short while ago !!!

went for blood tests again last week, im now on a higher dose of thyroxin and will go back in 4wks to see how thats helped me.

its been a long drawn out process but my god it was worth it,

well, its been five weeks now and the specialist asked me to take the blood glucose test......they took my blood, I drank that orange liquid......20 minutes later, threw it up!:(

So much for waiting the 2 hours for the second blood test!:-5

So will see her and see what she says with just the one fasting blood test!

I don't even have a week stomach?:confused:

anyone else throw up drinking that?
Life is just to short for drama.
