    Adenomas may stay adenomas for a long time, including all your life... but to get a better assessment, an MRI is the best indication.

      Hi there. I have been with a steady dosage of levothyroxin of 188 mg for some time now; recently my diabetes has gone a bit out of control, and now I discovered I am a bit hipo (less T3 than needed, T4 on the upper normal, TSH 0.10). Since I'm losing weight I expected the opposite to happen...  ... any idea why ? Search only led me to the effects of hipothyroidism on diabetes, not the other way around.  ...

            0.2mm is just too small to tell anything, or to be scared of anything. Just keep following it up.

              You just need to compartmentalize a bit in order to keep cheering up patients.

                Thanks. What the experience has shown is that knowing where your original tumor is stored and for how long is key if things go south. So besides doing ultrasounds and Tg measurements, having that knowledge enables a through genetic testing if you ever need one.

                  Tg level has never went to zero and was raising at almost every measurement, so there was some indication indeed.  TSH was suppresed by design; hormone intake is higher than I would need, in order to keep TSH undetectable and make my mets not too excited.  Tg level has now decreased, likely due to LDN treatment I'm doing (Low Dose Naltrexone). So far the progression can be called a remission.  Becau...

                    I had a full thyroidectomy in 2012, and only in 2017 the lung metastases were large enough to appear on CT.

                      The changes are within the error margin, so I would say your testes are stable. The two dimensions are too close to say whether is taller than wide or wider than tall.

                      I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in 2012, had 2 hemithyroidectomies and was hopeful that I would make a full recovery. After radioactive iodine there was still traces of Thyroglobulin with no findings in PET/CT, until end of 2016, when I was diagnosed with lung metastases. Genomics testing indicate NRAS mutation, and let's see what can be done to fight this formidable foo.
                      After receiving LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) and High Dosage Vitamin D, the exponential growth curve has turned to a slow decline, showing incredible results of this very simple, cheap and effective treatment.
                      Now adding alpha-lipoic acid to the combo, but it's soon to say if it helps or not.
