Hi there I have been diagnosed with graves disease a couple of weeks ago. I also have a lump on one side of my thyroid and need surgery. The histology is thy3 so I am worried. Surgeon has suggested either hemithyroidectory or total thyroidectomy. I will therefore be hypo if I have total thyroidectomy. If not I could be looking at further surgery if block & replace doesn't work (won't consider R iodine as I don't want to be away from kids). Also really worried I have thyroid cancel which will override any treatment choices anyway. Really confused. Any advice appreciated.
