Has anyone been a thyroid cancer survivor for more than 20 years?

Postby haviv » Tue May 29, 2012 8:02 am

I was diagnosed with 0.8cm papillary thyroid carcinoma and I have to have a total thyroidectomy. I have been reading the rate survival, and some say it is a 5 to 10 yrs but other say it is a 20 year or more. I am very very scared. My life and the life of my family has been changed upside down.

Is there anyone that has survived this cancer for more than 20 years or many years? Please I need only positive answers...I need hope.
