I received an e-mail from my surgeon last night. She had her pathology lab review my pathology slides from the first pathology group (trying to figure out how to say pathology just one more time in this sentence..ha!). She did not want to go cutting and radiating without her team telling her it was cancer. I completely understood and so we waited.
So, she e-mailed me last night to tell me that they confirmed the same diagnosis, follicular variant of papillary carcinoma. I need to start buying lottery tickets. The chance of having thyroid cancer was about 5% and then to have the variant I have was only 7% of that 5%. But it is what it is and now we move on with the cancer plan.
