First stage of my mum's Thyroid Cancer

17 May 2017 19:14

Hello everyone,


My mum has today been told from her first biopsy that the nodules on her throat are cancerous.


She has been told that she will need a biopsy to see which type of cancer and the progression of it. 

Does anybody know how long from the next biopsy how long the diagnosis will take?

Welcome to the forum Justin although I'm sorry to hear about your mum's diagnosis. 

Hopefully other members who have been in this position will reply soon but your mum's medical team will be the best people to discuss this with so if you have your mum's permission do get in touch with them to find out more. Our cancer nurses may be able to answer a few of your questions as well so if you would like to chat to them do give them a call on 0808 800 4040. You can call this number for free from a UK landline, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m. I have included some information about thyroid cancer from our website for you to have a look at as well.

I hope this helps Justin and that your mum doesn't have to wait too long for her next biopsy. Do let us know how she gets on when the time comes.

Best wishes to you both,
