      The National Comprehensive Cancer Network has a link to patient resources on the website to patient resources. The web address is jnccn360.org and the link is on the right hand side of the screen under "Resources for Your Patients"; it is the 4th one down, entitled "ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association, Inc." It links its website with lots of information!

      I had a hemithyroidectomy so they removed half of my thyroid. No radiation which was nice because I had just had radiation for breast cancer. I do take levothyroxin just to keep my levels stable. As MarciaLynn said, papillary thyroid cancer is very treatable with no side effects that I've noticed besides a scar on my neck. His doctors will give him all the information to make the best choice as there are options depending on the staging.

      My thyroid had a tumor that was pre-cancerous & was causing my heart to go into A Fib-- very strange, I had to have it removed before it caused a stroke.

      So I had my thyroid removed by radiotherapy--- a radioactive capsule that is swallowed, the thyroid is magically dissolves! You must stay away from people & animals for about three days & follow a procedure about eating & using bathroom and so on. Not too bad really!
      I now must take levothyroxin forever, no problems except I get cold in the winter.
