Hi all! I'm new to the forum.
I'm currently on the 2ww cancer pathway due to a thyroid scan that revealed a 'suspicious for cancer' nodule, also an enlarged nodular goitre.
I had a FNA biopsy last week. I've just received my next (outpatients) appointment letter for 2wks from the last appt. but the silly thing that gave me a tearful day yesterday was that I'm required to bring my own dressing gown and to 'prepare to be examined' which I take to mean that I'll be scanned or x-rayed ie. the cancer isn't localised.
I'm finding the whole process much easier to deal with when I can predict what will happen next... is this course of action similar to anyone else's ?
(ps the houseman? is that the right word? already said - make that blurted out! that the whole thyroid would be removed and that the results of the fna would determine if my neck needed 'reseccting?' is that the right terminology)
thank you in anticipation
