Help!!! Hi. I seem to manufacture thyroid growths. Have had 2 left side goitres removed, last one Oct. 11. 10cm mass seen Jan 13 in chest. Today after biopsy diagnosed as thyroid tissue.
As in upper chest operation would need to split sternum to remove it and danger of damage caused to laryngeal nerve and phrenic nerve, so could lose voice and also problem with breathing/diaphram.
This seems to be rare, so am asking if anyone out there has had a similar problem, please please contact me, as in dilemma to operate or not. Thorasic and ENT consultants involved, as major op if go ahead.
