I'm really surprised how different our doctors are handling things. I've got numerous suspicious nodes in my neck that have popped up in the past 6 months and my doctor doesn't want to do anything about them. I cannot understand how that makes any sense at all? The largest is only 120mm but that has grown to that size in 6 months. How big have your nodes been? I'm so upset because I feel like I am overreacting and that I am now being a bother to him because the cancer keeps coming back.
I have just turned 27. 😞

I am really sorry u had such bad news. I am going through something very similar at the moment. I got diagnosed with thyroid cancer when I was 23, I have had 2 surgerys and 3 iodine treatments. Some nodes showed up again 6 months ago and have grown since then. My specialist wants me to wait another 6 months before I do anything. I am really finding it difficult to continue my life as normal as I have been told to do. I'm so scared it will spread somewhere else. Everyone says this cancer doesn't grow but mine and yours seem the same. I would really appreciate it if u could let me know what your specialist suggests to you.
Keep strong and positive.
