Hello, I would be grateful for any feedback because I'm quite nervous since my last appointment with my endo.
For 30 years I've been taking thyroid meds for Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and I just saw my endo for a checkup and this time he said my thyroid was enlarged and nodular. He suspects I may have "a little thyroid cancer" as he put it but he doesn't want to do anything but keep an eye on it. My symptoms are extreme fatigue, pressing feeling on my throat, difficulty swallowing, hoarseness when I talk, dry cough, and general malaise. My endo says that as long as I'm on enough thyroid replacement there's nothing to worry about.
My thyroid levels are good and my tsh is very suppressed so the dr doesn't think that it will grow but I'm a nervous wreck since he raised the possibility of cancer. I want to know for sure and if it is cancer then decide whether to wait and see based on information and not a hunch. Am I being a worry wort or should I push for more tests?
Any help would be appreciated.
