Hi, a bit of reassurance needed please!
Following me noticing a thyroid nodule, others seen on unltrasound, High antibodies, other thyroid levels fine, 2 indeterminate FNAs and consultations with a general surgeon and a thyroid surgeon, I (reluctantly) decided to have a thyroidectomy done by the thyroid surgeon and it is this week.
I am probably being naive, but I think it is unlikely that the nodule is malignant, but I have been persuaded that I will never know that for sure. Monitoring of any changes - which will happen with Hashimotos - will only raise concerns about changes due to malignancy.
So I know it will be best to know for sure, and the operation is low risk.
But it feels really weird to have an operation this week when I am feeling completely well!
So I would like to hear from anyone who made the same decision.
Thanks in anticipation
