My journey with Dr. Michael Yeh and my thyroid cancer

By sharonjc

I am so thankful for Dr. Michael Yeh who did my second thyroid cancer surgery. After removing some cancerous tumors he discovered another small one attached to my laryngeal nerve, he made the decision not to remove it because it would have changed my voice and the quality of my life. Afterwards he also said I should not have radiation (that several other doctors insisted that I get and needed), but Dr. Yeh stayed strong and said let's wait and see and continues to monitor me. It is now 2 years later and I did not have any more radiation or surgery. What a wonderful 2 years. I am so grateful. Thank you Dr. Yeh!
