Result from lymph node biopsy

It’s not cheesecake, but it’s just as good.

On morning Friday, I got a phone call from my doctor. She told me that the biopsy concluded that it wasn’t cancer. Instead, what I had was a reactive lymph node. When I asked her what that meant, she said that my body was fighting off an infection. Sure, I thought, but I’ve heard similar remarks before.

The pain from the biopsy should go away soon, and can take up to a week.

After the call ended, I texted my husband and called my mother with the news. Both were happy. Later that night, we bought a frozen cake and had a beer to celebrate.

But still, I’m leery. I will hope for the best though.

I would like to thank several kind folks who told me about their thyroid cancer experience on Facebook last year or so. Knowing what was going to/could happen made this experience a lot less scary. Thank you.

Anyway, how is your thyroid cancer journey going?
