Like sugar in a jar of water, if it sits there, eventually it comes out of solution forming sludge. ...Read more

D/w your oncologist: Survival for cancer will depend on diffferent things like the stage, type of cancer (biology of cancer), your overall health condition, treatment received, response of treatment etc. Now, I doubt that the cancer in the gallbladder is directly connected to the thyroid- thus these are two separate occurences.
