I have been chronically ill for the past 8 years. It started as severe migraines, along with extreme all over pain, and high inflammation. I had a rough pregnancy with our youngest followed by a cancer diagnosis about a year later. I have been basically in constant pain for almost 8 years.
Is there such a thing? I'm quoting my doctor here- if I had to have cancer this is the one I would want to have.
Two weeks ago, I found out I have thyroid cancer (papillary thyroid carcinoma- to be exact). Apparently, this is the most common type of thyroid cancer and is most prevalent in women. The main thing is- one: people don't die from this type of cancer (sigh of relief) and two: you don't have to have chemo (double sigh of relief). This of course is for the majority of cases and as always there are exceptions to the rule.
