Comment on Hypothyroidism
Replying to Julie Shute

Great! I had a hemithyroidectomy due to cancer. So far, so good. For whatever reason, thyroid cancer is occurring more often in younger women. I am thankful that the endocrinologist who I was sent to after I relocated ordered a thyroid ultrasound. None of my previous physicians ever did. As he told me, "everyone should have at least on thyroid ultrasound." Glad he did! Thanks for sharing!
