    Oh No

    I just found out i have papillary thyroid caner from fnb . they need to run test to see if it spread.I found telling my family was really bad. I thought they were going to remove my thyroid first but she said they have make sure it did,t spread.My cancer came back as tall cell which is a n agresive form of papillary cancer.
