Basically, his recommendation was surgery to remove the thyroid.

Oh, I'm sorry you're going to have to go through this. We've got a couple of members who check in occasionally who've dealt with thyroid cancer, so hopefully one of them will drop by soon to share their experience with you.

A second opinion is never a bad idea, especially if you're not entirely comfortable or sure of the first diagnosis.

You know, talking to your family might help relieve some of the stress/worry that you're feeling. I know that they can't do anything to help really, but knowing that they're there for you can help you feel a great deal better. (((hug)))
