In 2003, I had a major wake up call when I was diagnosed with the possibility of Thyroid Cancer: follicular carcinoma, single nodule in right lobe. Thank goodness the final diagnosis as of 10/28/03 IS BENIGN! Follicular adenoma was favored (means, just a tumor!)

I have posted Pictures and a diary of my ThyCa experience. I hope others with this disease can learn from them and take away something positive.
