Is It Standard Procedure For My Dr To See My Naked After My Surgery To Get My Thyroids Taken Out Due To Cancer?

No, there is no need to see you undressed.
You doctor would not be able to visualize metastatic thyroid cancer, that's what a PET scan is for.

I'm 16, and i had my thyroid taken out several months ago due to cancer. None of my doctors ever saw me naked.

No there is nothing about this that is standard procedure.

There is no reason to ?check for cancer? in other parts of your body after surgery and you should have been dressed in a hospital gown.


Any physical exam would have taken place before surgery.
