Hello everyone! My Gastro told me that breast and thyroid cancer are more prevelant with people with PBC, so he makes sure I am screened. I had my first Thyroid ultrasound on Friday and they found 2 nodules, 1 about a cm and another smaller than that. Because they were screening me for cancer in the first place, they want to biopsy. I am not super concerned about this, for some reason, though I am usually very anxious about everything. I guess I didn't expect anything and when they found something I was sort of in shock. I read online that 95% of nodules are benign, but I have a friend who had hers found like this and hers was cancer. She had the cancer that easy to cure, not the other one, but still.
1. I am not nervous I will die of this, because if I do have cancer, its very early.
2. However I am nervous if I have cancer that it will make me getting a transplant later harder or impossible.
Has anyone had this happen to them. I was so shocked I forgot to ask if the nodules were solid or fluid filled. He would have told me. But he did want it to be scheduled and biopsy it. He said it was contained in the thyroid and didn't look like it was pushing into any other surrounding tissue. Any thoughts or experiences would be helpful.
