Today I saw my endocrinologist after my recent thyroid ultrasound. As explained by the radiologist at the time, I had a few lumps on my thyroid, none of which were large enough to warrant a biopsy.
When speaking to the doctor today, he said that while none of the lumps were large, one of them was calcified which is apparently a "tiny red flag" (his words) for carcinoma. Gulp. So I go for another ultrasound in 6 months and if it gets bigger or calcifies more, again I'm slated for a biopsy.
So not terribly bad news, but not good news either, because it's not quite over yet. Here's hoping I am able to forget about it all for the next 6 months as opposed to exhibiting typical Tracey behaviour and spending every day thinking about the giant tumour growing in my neck. Awesome!
