Thyroid Cancer 101: After 3 Surgeries,2 Radioiodine Treatments, and a New Lymph Node is Found to be Thyroid Cancer Again!
This abnormal lymph node was biopsied and needle wash for thyroglobulin proved she had another neck recurrence.She had 2 neck dissections in the past and lost one recurrent nerve. She heard of alternatives to another hospital visit and surgery and came for my evaluation. It was determined she was a candidate for ethanol ablation PEI of the lymph node.
The 10 minute procedure included injecting 1 ml of 200 proof medical grade ethanol into the lymph node. She had no pain and because the recurrent nerve was already damaged on that side she had no additional voice changes.
Tired of endless surgery and radioioodine for thyroid cancer?
Studies also show the expense of PEI is 1/10 of surgery, and there is no post op recovery time.
Consider PEI for your late recurrences after you have had enough surgery and radiation.
