I've been diagnosed with thyroid cancer & it's also spread to the lymph nodes in the right side of my neck.
Although uncommon, it is treatable & hopefully survivable.

I'm going to be having surgery to remove the thyroid & lymph nodes in a couple of weeks time (just waiting for the exact date.) After that, I may also need to have radiotherapy. The surgery will leave a big scar (starting under my ear & going around my throat) but I really don't mind - it's way better than the alternative & may even give me a swashbuckling, pirate air! *g*

Obviously, it's cancer & a nasty op, but I just feel so incredibly lucky that it's not something worse & that there is treatment.

Oh darling, what a surprising piece of news. But as you say "... it is treatable & hopefully survivable" it doesn't sound quite so shocking.

Thank you for sharing the news with us, and I do hope all goes well and that the operation will be a success.

My prayers and thoughts are with you all.

So sorry to hear your news but fingers crossed for the success of the treatment.
A duelling scar sounds cool and it's good that you are being so positive about it but it is still a difficult thing to go through and I wish you well.
