I went to have my hearing checked and that's when I found out about a nodule in my left thyroid. It was really scary when I first found out. When I came to UCLA, the doctors checked it with an ultrasound and decided to have it removed with surgery. The surgery itself went smoothly and wasn't too painful. I'm all good now and Dr. Yeh was great - he explained everything well and the entire staff at the surgery center was very friendly. They called me first thing the next morning to see how I was feeling, and that type of attention means a lot when you're going through a scary situation like this.
