OMG! Best news I've ever received!!!
Today I received some news that literally had me WEEPING with relief and joy in the parking lot. I had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer about two weeks ago after finding a lump in my throat and experiencing some of the worst fatigue I have ever had for a few months. I went in for some pretty intense biopsies last week to isolate the TYPE of cancer inhabiting my thyroid. I was so scared it was going to come back as an aggressive form, due to the rapid growth of the tumor. I couldn't get my GP's worthless nurse to call me back or get me in for an appt, so I drove down to the lab that ran the test to pick up a copy. Well, it turns out they had it wrong with the first diagnosis and I don't have ANY cancer. I have an atypical nodular structure, but it's not malignant. I have never seen a more beautiful word than "benign". I'll still probably end up having to have surgery and/or the radioactive treatments, BUT, I won't have to be terrified every waking minute that it's metastatic. Now there's more bloodwork to isolate what's causing all of this (probably Hashimoto's) weirdness. I just want to thank ALL of you for being so supportive. I do believe in the power of positive thought/prayer/whatever it might be, and know that it helps. :-)
