I'm a 41 yr old lady from Mi.I have found this site looking for answers.I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and hypercalcemia this past year! I've been very ill,and all the endocrinologist kept telling me was they needed to watch me.All my T levels are fine,just my TSH is high.Endo said he thought I had a nodule/tumor,but wouldn't scan me.Finally here in October I went back again for check up.I told him I had a appointment in December for a 2nd opinion.He says well....I can run your scans! A week ago I got the results back as parathyroid adenoma tumor it is 3.4cm x 1.6cm.., That's big the doctor says! I'm going to this other doctor soon,but I'm just curious of others outcome? I've been told I will never get better without tumor removed!
