It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for! ENT called with pathology results from the larger lymph node removed from my neck. Diagnosis: Medullary Thyroid Cancer. MTC for the cool kids in the know.
A rare form of thyroid cancer. It can be aggressive and difficult to treat. My ENT recommended that I see a specialist because so few doctors encounter this type of cancer.
Couldn’t it just be some normal cancer? Stupid hipster cancer.
At least I finally know what I’m up against.
Next step: More tests, talking to insurance, finding a doctor, researching treatment, and (my favorite) more waiting.
