My Goiter



My Goiter
I don't know if you can appreciate the swelling in my neck.  It doesn't appear very large here but is causing compression on my trachea (windpipe) and my esophagus.

  1. I will appreciate it:)
    The really high radiation induced cancer risk is found among the people who had radiation beam therapy for neck lesions and were exposed to radioactive iodine contamination.
    Good luck with your surgery!
    Your picture reminded me about my high school teacher who had very visible nodule that students called "madam's apple"

  2. Thanks for reminding me about the real radiation risks for thryoid cancer. I am aware but I think that I have been trying to find every angle to be sure that I am doing the right thing. Read today's post to see some more realistic reasons to have the gland removed.
    Thanks for your luck....I will be glad to have my "madam's apple" gone soon.
