Two years ago, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and had my thyroid gland and several cancerous lymph nodes in my neck removed. The radiation therapy I had post-surgery was expected to get rid of any remaining cancer left after surgery. However, the tumor marker numbers never went down to zero, and over the last two years they continued to increase to the point where, finally, two weeks ago, a PET scan showed three spots on in my liver where (via my lymph system) the thyroid cancer had migrated.
