Oh No (Diagnosed): After a routine visit to my primary care for high blood pressure medicine, my doctor said "What's that in our throat, it dosen't look normal".
After several Endocronologist visits, a detailed fine needle procedure, I found I had thyroid cancer that spread into my lymph nodes.
Felt naseuous daily at the same time and thought it was related to the thyroid.
After an endoscopy I found I had a GIST, rare stromal tumor in my stomach.
Had a total throidectomy and 5 months later, removal of the GIST.
Doing OK now, but challenging.
Still having radiation treatments.
