      That would be up to you and your radiation oncologist. You need to ask him/her.

      I've undergone internal radiation for thyroid cancer, but I'm no doctor. Like Nancy said, I would definately call and ask beforehand. Sometime your dr.s get so busy they forget to give you all the details & you're so nervous that you forget your questions!
      If I had to guess, you'll be getting chemo? In which case, that should be treat the thryoid cancer as well, since that's normally a final step in thyoid cancer treatment.
