Is Body Massage Good I Had Thyroid Cancer
Is it possible that my thyroid cancer originated from another cancer in my body that has not been identified?
Unlikely : If on biopsy they have identified it as a type of thyroid cancer, then the cells are from the thyroid that they are seeing.

Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
I have 20% of thyroid cancer in left but it remove now i ask I'm totally have cancer all over my body what food to avoiding to eat thx?
I don't understand: your thyroid history. Was your cancer removed? Do you still have thyroid cancer in your body? You need to provide a lot more details -- but there are no foods you need to avoid, unless you are scheduled to receive a dose of radioiodine, in which case iodine restriction may be indicated before dosing. Discuss w/your doctors, ...Read more
I had my thyroid removed due to thyroid cancer. Can't seem to get meds regulated. Current dr. Is questioning if my body is absorbing my medication?
Same as plan iodine: You ingest iodine every day - in salt, salty foods, seafood, many breads, & red food coloring. The thyroid absorbs what it needs; the rest is excreted into the urine (+ a little into sweat, saliva, and other secretions). The i-131 atoms that decay in the thyroid cells (and give off beta and gamma energy that kills thyroid cells) become nonradioactive xenon-131 atoms, and are breathed out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is thyroid cancer notorious for hiding anywhere in the body? Is that why I have to get follow up whole body iodine scans?
Common: Most people who have had thyroid cancer are "survivors", since it is very uncommon to die of thyroid cancer. Full body scans are typically done to see if there is any evidence for thyroid cancer elsewhere in the body. You need to be on a low iodine diet for 2 weeks beforehand, and typically it is done after receiving thyrogen for 2 days. ...Read more
Every since being diagnosed & treated for thyroid cancer in 2010 I am paranoid & scared of every pain I have in my body. Normal or no?
Normal: Even though it's thyroid cancer, it still cancer and affected you psychologically the same. It's good to be "in tune" with your body as long as you don't obssess about it. I recommend close medical follow up with your physicians, maintain good hydration and activity level. Try yoga. It's cleansing both mentally and physically. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Total thyroidectomy for thyroid cancer 4 years ago. Don't like the way levothyroid makes me feel..Anything natural i can take that is just as good?
Yes, even better: The main alternative to levothyroxine is natural thyroid glandular preparations such as Armour Thyroid ; nature-throid. These contain T4 and t3 (liothyronine) whereas levothyroxine only has t4. A firm majority of patients who try natural thyroid say they feel better with it vs. Levothyroxine. Another alternative is to add synthetic t3 (liothyronine). See http://abt.Cm/1biokmw ; http://abt.Cm/18gpb3a ; http://bit.Ly/15k26u8. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
