Hi - I had a 5cm right sided thyroid nodule found accidentally on a CT scan for another issue. This was found Aug 2016.
The ENT surgeon said that I should have a thryoidectomy.
I'm a bit concerned about having a thyroidectomy, as I have no idea what it entails after - and how it could affect my health.
Does anyone have any experience of thyroid nodules.
- Do they grow / need surgery?
- Are there alternatives?
- What happens after a thyroidectomy?
