      Hi Andrea,
      You need an evaluation in my center.
      It will take a one day visit.The evaluation includes examination ultrasound and USG repeat biopsy and molecular markers to be sure there is low likelihood of a cancer.
      This complete study will determine if you are a candidate for ablations procedures as alternative to surgery.
      Depending on the results I will personally refer you to experts or do ethanol ablation in my office in 2 weeks.You will have a short stay in country if you need Radiofrequency ablation with my referral.
      The fee is $2500 US for the evaluation.
      The treatment fee is about $3500 US for RFA in Europe or Korea and $2500 for ethanol ablation in my center.
      Call or email to 310-393-8860 or thyroid.manager@protonmail.com

      Hope to see you soon,

      Dr.G.
