Just been diagnosed with this too. Was a whirl whind or appointments and test. Consultant said had 3 nodules in thyroid 3cm in size and cancer has been detected.
At review on Thurs i was sent for pre op assessment, bloods and ecg. Had CT scan of lymph nodes on Fri and surgery is booked for next Thurs.
He said full thyroid will be removed possible some lymph nodes too. There may be a chance I need the tablet and some radiotherapy.
I asked had it been caught early, his reply "no" but not to worry. He was quite surprised no symptoms had been displayed other than a lump 7 weeks ago.
I havent really had time to process whole thing as its been quick moving and a shock.
I try not to worry as in reality it is out of my control but its human nature to do so.
