    Also, the current imaging should have been compared to the previous imaging.  Does the report document the comparison?  It should.

      Well, I wouldn't take that reply as any type of medical advice.  What you've provided is a tiny portion of what should be included in an imaging report.  Folliclular lesions often times are not discernible by FNA. and difficult to discern be genomic testing.  That alone would prompt me to get a second opinion, but your YMMV. Good luck!

        "Ti-rads category 5" what did the second opinion conclude?  you still haven't even had a lobe removed?  Follicular thyroid cancer is notorious for being difficult to diagnose, even with genomic testing. The TIRADS 5 is beyond concerning. You should be concerned. TI-RADS 5 category malignant pattern B: isoechoic or hypoechoic, nonencapsulated, hypervascularized, multiple peripheral microcalcifications...

          I have not read of hoarsness as a symptom of thyroid cancer recurrence, only something that may occur with thyroid nodules/thyroid cancer.  I hope your TSH gets under control asap, as 9.5 is very high, even for people with thyroids.

                Please; make sure you get your rTSH to measure your thyrodean cells.

                  Yes.   And the efficacy of ethanol eblation on cancerous thyroid tumors should be studied as well, so no one ever has to lose a thyroid again. thyroid cancer utopia.

                    Sorry you're choosing to leave.  You're not posting anything here that we don't already know from long term experience, and I'm sorry you do not realize this.  I'm sorry you choose to put the cart waaay ahead of the horse, when you don't even have a thyroid cancer diagnosis. Good luck to you on your path.  Wishing you a benign Dx, and if not; a good prognosis.  Aloha!
