I saw my specialist last Monday who after review of the FNA in Oxford, is recommending a right thyroid lobectomy. I'd already agreed to it as the nodule was uncomfortable and already 3cm big.
It's now more uncomfortable, particularly around the top of my chest and a little at the back of my neck and whilst my head tells me that something that size in my neck is bound to be compressing several bits and bobs there, in my more anxious moments, of which there seem to be many at the moment, I can convince myself that there are more problems than the thyroid. I do feel a lot more tired too but not sure whether it's just psychologcal. I teach English to private students and find that after a 2 hour lesson my neck aches too.
He also said he would like to remove it in the next 4 weeks ( oh right, NHS!? ) which sort of panicked me a bit but I first went to my Doctor in November so time is rolling on.
I keep getting fobbed off too when asking for my Biopsy results. Wishing I was back in France where you have instant access to your information and more rapid response to any health issues than here.
Can I assume that the more aggressive thyroid cancer would have been more obvious on a biopsy?
