I was diagnosed with a cyst (I forget the size exactly, but I know it was measured in millimeters) about 10 months ago. The doctor told me it was nothing to worry about we'll just watch its growth. I asked him if it could be cancer and he said no. Its now 10 months later and my regular doctor ordered another ultrasound because I'm having random pains in my throat again and I'm pretty sure it is cancer all Ive been doing this last night is constantly crying. I cried myself to sleep and woke up crying for the fear that it is cancer. I strongly believe I have thyroid cancer because I was reading some posts online about a lot of people who were diagnosed with a "benign" cyst and ended up being malignant. I probably won't be able to get the ultrasound done until monday and my life feels like hell until I get a proper diagnosis. My body also aches at night time I feel like the cancer has spread ;( I'm terrified and I am living in a world of doom.
