Diagnosed Jan 2 ( Happy New Year!with stage 4 thyroid cancer that has a large growth in airway spread to lymph nodes and throat and lungs. I’ve known that there was a blockage in my throat for almost a year and have had laryngitis ( paralysis of a vocal chord) for 6 months. Doctors missed it, specialist misdiagnosed it as acid reflux started coughing up blood at New Years went to emergency but released. Thankfully referred for a cat scan. I’m a 51 year old male that feels quite healthy despite only having 10% airway. I’m a pipe welder that loves my job and I’ve worked 60 hours a week every week for the last several years. I have a tremendous support group of family and friends and am now waiting on specific type of thyroid cancer and treatment plan. I have lots of questions and appreciate a forum to learn from.
