In brief: 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. Prognosis of follicular/papillary is good if surgically resected w/negative margin.D/w md.
