My eldest is filling out forms for college. In December she had half her thyroid removed. There was an incidental finding of a microcarcinoma. The cancer would probably not have been detected for years, had a different problem not warrented the removal of the thyroid lobe. The protocol for a cancer of that size is a lobectomy, which was done.
On some of the forms it asks if the applicant is a cancer survivor.
Do I write down yes? (She can't fill out her forms, she isn't 18.)
