I was having some neck problems so an ultrasound was done. A nodule was discovered on my thyroid. The doctor told me to wait and we would watch it. A biopsy was done and I was still told we could monitor it. I waited two years. But I came to UCLA and was told we should move forward with surgery as the latest biopsy indicated it was cancer.
I saw Dr. Yeh and he did the surgery. Everything was great - the recovery was fast and my scar is almost invisible.
This visit, Dr. Yeh said I am doing so well I don't need to come back. I am cancer free! Dr. Yeh is the best!
