In brief: Yes

If you have thyroid cancer, you should already have an endocrinologist and a thyroid surgeon on your team (and possibly a radiation oncologist also).
They should work together to find the source of the elevated thyroglobulin. You might need radioactive iodine or repeat surgery. Good luck.

In brief: Yes

Need to see a thyroid specialist, either an endocrinologist or thyroid surgeon, to look for sites of thyroglobulin production usually via a thyroid uptake scan.
Then treatment can be appropriately tailored to you.
