 My symptoms were weight gain, fluctuating tsh levels every month, sore muscles, extreme fatigue, and sharp pains in my neck every once in a while. Mine was missed for 4 years on thyroid scans and fna biopsies by 3 different doctors. Found on those same slides and scans by doctors at MD Anderson in Houston.

I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2001. If you did your research you would see that most people don't even know they have thyroid cancer. Mine was diagnosed because of a goiter, which is very uncommon now. My doctors were easily able to detect and treat my cancer with radio iodine eblations. Hopefully you can find the right endocrinologist not a family doctor and you to will be fine.
