Iv'e just been told I have a tubulovillous adenoma with low grade dyspiasia and have to go and have it removed, does that mean its cancerous, ?
Benign : Technically, it can be benign or malignant, so it has to be surgically removed and histologically examined for malignant criteria.

My tg level after thyrodomicty because of hurtle adenoma is less than.2 and TSH is.04 but have tgab is it mean cancer?Which is good tg and TSH or tgab
Quit worrying about: Your thyroid cancer specialist will guide you further. I would ask you not to worry about these blood tests as they are not particularly reliable. As long as your cancer has been removed and it was early, you have little chance of recurrence of your cancer. Most times we have to rely on a visible tumor growth before we can take it as evidence of recurrence, blood tests are not all that helpful. ...Read more

Could my son get cancer if he was diagnosed with pleomorphic adenoma, 3 tumors in the neck and 1 in cheek?
Rarely: Pleiomorphic adenomas are benign tumors of saliva glands. It is unusual for them to be in the neck itself, but they can arise "rests" of salivary tissue in the neck. They tend not to spread to other parts of the body but can grow back in the areas where they arose in about 20% of patients who had surgery. Rarely they can turn cancerous and spread to other organs. Best wishes. ...Read more
