After a second biopsy on my thyroid nodules, my consultant, who is checking them for cancer,left a message on my answerphone last night saying he needs to speak with me. I phoned his secretary first thing this morning but he's in surgery all day so I've been told he will probably phone tonight or in the morning. My follow up appointment for results was for August, so the fact he is contacting me earlier has me a bit worried. After the first biopsy I just got the results at the follow-up appointment.
I am still in early loading doses of b12 by injection but need to know, please.......if my fears are confirmed and it's thyroid cancer or the consultant wants to remove part or all of the thyroid, is it possible that could be avoided if b12 is corrected over time or does that have no bearing on thyroid cancer?
I would just like to be prepared for any discussion when I do get that call from the consultant. I don't really want to lose an important gland unless it's absolutely necessary.
Any advice most welcome.
