    Default Carcinoma of thyroid

    It is great to read a thyroid cancer story. I personally have not had cancer, but my 15 year old daughter was diagnosed this year with Papillary carcinoma. She had her TT in Feb 08, We are scheduled for a check up in 2 weeks. I am a little nervous about the visit, but have not expressed my thoughts to my daughter.
