I have a nodule in my thyroid and recently had a fine needle aspiration which came back indeterminate. They also did an "affirma gene expression", which is some sort of genetic testing of the biospy, and it came back "suspicious". According to my doctor, that means there is a 40% chance it is cancerous and due to that, they want to remove the rest of my thyroid and I'll have to take thyroid medication the rest of my life (a long time, I'm not that old).
I feel like I'm being forced into the surgery without any alternatives.
Any advice would be welcome. Thank you!
