By Simi Valley Simi Valley

For 35 years I knew I had to have my thyroid goiter removed, but the thought of someone slitting my throat and possible losing my voice, was not an option (I had small children at home). But when the goiter started pushing inward onto my esophagus and windpipe, I realized I had to do it. […]

Dr. Livhits said she would just take half of it out, why have more out when there isn’t anything suspicious on the left side. i was […]

My Incredible UCLA Team

By Peanut Peanut

Through Lifescreen, a nodule was found on the left side of my thyroid. They told me to take it to my doctor. When I saw her, she did an ultrasound, then nothing happened. 6 months later I had still had symptoms so another ultrasound was done. But I was told my symptoms were likely just […]
