    Just find out about the Papillary Carcinoma

    Just find out about the Papillary Carcinoma. Also I have a cervical disc bulged and a lumber disc bulged with annual tear. My E.N.T is sending me to the Neck and shoulder Dr for the removal of thyroid. I hope everything will go fine . I am keeping myself positive. I am 33 years old and have two beautiful daughters for whom I have to fight this cancer. I am looking for information about the diet that I should follow now before the surgery but hasn't found yet so if someone can give me an idea on what to eat and what to avoid that would be great.

    Thank you for making this forum .

    Sorry that no one has answered up. This should be relatively easy, as cancer surgery goes. As to diet, the hospital or clinic that performs the surgery should have an on-staff dietician who can advise you. If not, then call doctor's office and ask to speak to the nurse. Although this must be terribly stressful, it will soon be over and you can focus once again on those you love.

    10/18 I was withdrawn from the Kadmon KD025 clinical trial due to increasing fatigue/lack of benefit.
    11/18 Began therapy with Ruxolitinib (Jakafi), a JAK 1&2 inhibitor class drug. Started at half-dose due to concerns with drug interactions.

    To date: 1 cancer, relapse, second relapse/mutation into 2 cancers, then 3 cancers simultaneously, 20 chemotherapy/GVHD drugs in 11 regimens (4 of them at least twice), 5 salvage regimens, 4 clinical trials, 5 post-transplant immuno-suppressant/modulatory drugs, the equivalent of 1,000 years of background radiation from 40+ CT series scans and about 24 PET scans.
    Both lymphoid and myeloid malignancies lend a certain symmetry to the hematological journey.

    Believing in the redemptive value of suffering makes all the difference.

    Papillary carcinoma and occipital nodule

    Greetings of peace and love.
    I am Maryliza 44y/o, single parent of three children. I underwent thyroidectomy last May 31, 2016 due ti hyperthyroidsm. This morning i received my histological report at a surprised that one of my nodules with the size of 8mm was resulted papillary carcinoma. I never expect it because when i underwent needle aspiration for biopsy it resulted benign. I never thought that this small nodule is Resulted to papillary carcinoma because the biggest nodule measures 3cm where they get sample for biopsy was benign. My greatest fear Now was i find out that i have occipital nodule again Just above my back hairline right side, i did not go yet to my endocrinologist because she is out of country but i sent her email attached the histological report and told about occipital nodule that i found out. Please advice me i am very worried. Thank you and Godspeed.
