Causes And Treatment Of Cancer?
Hello, 3 months ago I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer. Currently handled by an oncologist. The tumor has been removed with part of my right thyroid, the left thyroid is still intact. It so happened that I joined pitatosca’s friends, where all the papillary ca. of thyroidectomy had continued ablation. But how come I am different, until now my doctor has been given euthyrox 100mcg. The doctor said it’s easy enough with the medicine not growing again. Is the MMG handling different? And do I have to find a second opinion? Thank you☺
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the condition of tumors in each person can indeed be different, there are tumors found when their size is still small, some are found when it is large, there are found only on one side of the thyroid, some are found on both sides, some are found when it has invaded surrounding tissues, some are found when they have metastasized to distant organs. Tumor response to treatment can also vary in each person, some after the tumor is not re-grown, there is no response at all to treatment (for example in cancer that requires chemotherapy), there is a tumor that grows again after surgery. Therefore treatment for tumors / cancers is specifically designed for each person according to the condition of the disease and is also adjusted to the expectations of each patient, and this also applies to patients who have papillary thyroid cancer.
If you want to ask for a second opinion from another oncologist, of course you can do it. That is your right as a patient.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
