In brief: Increased likelihood

Yes, likelihood of thyroid CA is increased with chronic thyroid disease like yours.
It does not mean though that you already have or definitively will have CA, but you MAY develop it. You must be monitored to have a chance to catch CA early. At this time the only advise I give is to be consistent with your treatments and follow ups as it is recommended by your treating MD.
