Follicular CA thyroi: 67 F with follicular disease of thyroid. Ask about is it CA, prognosis, RAI RX? ANS: likely cancer but your team knows you best. RAI. not usually used. Likely need surgery. Tend to run in families so get detailed family tree and inform every first degree relative one Dx is clear. Surgery can cure.
