One step closer

I had my appointment with the surgeon this morning. She could easily feel the cyst. According to the ultrasound report it is 3.0×1.7×0.2 cm with little cysts attached to it. So now I have an appointment for Wednesday morning for a needle biopsy. She is going to drain it then and hopefully that will be the end of it.

Of course it’s never pleasant to hear the “c” word spoken by a doctor, but the odds are in my favor. She said just by feeling it and reading the report she is 80% sure it is just a cyst and nothing to worry about. It’s that 20% that requires a closer look and is why I’m having the biopsy next week.

Even if it is thyroid cancer the odds are still in my favor. But we’re just going to focus on that 80% chance that it’s just a cyst and not think about the implications of it being anything else. We’ll cross that bridge if we have to come to it.
