Just a quick note about a benign thyroid nodule

found in my wife's neck. She was so relieved to learn of it. She had already made it through Hodgekins' Disease 18 yrs ago so this comes as a very very nice Christmas gift. She'll have the entire gland removed in late January.

Wife had both sides removed in separate operations a couple years apart, several years ago. Aside from having to take a thyroid pill daily, she's getting along fine.

Great news, Gary! I know you both are relieved! Merry Christmas to you and yours. :)

Talk to her endocrinologist about the possibility of removing the nodule only. It is possible in some cases and could prevent her from needing thyroxine every day for the rest of her life. Many surgeons are quick to remove the entire gland.

Did that already. Since she had intense doses of radiation therapy to destroy tumors from the Hodgekins Disease and it is proven over the years that people who have had such radiation typically develop thyroid malignancies within 20years, the recommendation is total thyroidectomy and she agrees not wanting to push the envelope, so to speak.

Well, considering the alternative, I guess it's good news. I hope everything goes well with the removal.
