Thyroid tumor?

Anyone who has had their thyroid out, care to share your experience with me? My younger sister has a 5 cm tumor on hers and has to have it removed. They took biopsies, but are not sure if it is benign or malignant yet. In any event they believe it to be a slow growing mass, and most likely benign, but since it is so large and wrapped around her thyroid, they will be removing her entire thyroid gland either way. Curious how you felt after and how long recovery took, if you have a noticeable scar. I'm worried about her!

Please tell her to go to naturalthyroidchoices.com.  If the nodules are benign, then she needs to detox and take iodine to heal her thyroid.  She most likely has hashimoto's or graves (autoimmune disorders of the thyroid).  Stephanie's website is full of very useful information.  She is a thyroid cancer survivor.

Thank you for posting this! I have Hashimotos and am underactive.

I have a large nodule on my thyroid. It occasionally goes active causing hyperthyroidism. I've been in remission for 2 years now though and hoping to stay that way to avoid surgery.

Good luck to your sister!
