I am a 33 year year old mom, wife, daughter and friend and I was recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I have a large nodule on my left thyroid gland. I also have a 7mm nodule of my right lung. I will be having surgery to remove all of my thyroid on Dec 26th and then I will have 1-31 rasioactive iodine to zap and cells left. Then I will go on thyroid hormones and suppresion therapy. I am overwhelmed, freaked out and trying my best to be optimistic. Thyroid cancer at least the type I have is highly treatable and things could be a lot worse. I am scared, and overwhelmed and am trying to read and absorb as much info as I can about this type of cancer.
