      Aside from the shock and the fact that this is the rare form of medullary thyroid cancer, I just live day by day wondering when it will rear it's ugly head again. My calcitonin levels keep creeping up showing that there is more there but too small to find. Only treatment for this type is surgery and I have gone through MRI's, Pet Scans, Ultrasounds, and biopsies that are killing me financially so decision to hold off on next pet scan until we can see what calcitonin level is doing before shelling out the $ again.
