    Some will remember that my 18 year old daughter, Tegan, had to have half her thyroid removed back in April.

    Good news... she's had a letter saying all is well. No cancer, nothing. Just a benign lump.

    Has to have blood tests and follow-up appointments, but she's fine. It's taken ages because of CV-19.

    And she's singing just as good as before.

    I can't tell you how relieved I am smile

      This is wonderful news, Bev. I was wondering about the possibility of cancer because I noticed that you didn't mention that the swelling was benign before. It's also great to hear that Tegan's voice hasn't been affected.

      Your daughter is really fortunate that it was only a benign lump. I had a precancerous thyroid removed in 2010, and it has affected my life. First, it had a detrimental effect on my speech. After carrying on a short conversation with a colleague or friend, my voice would fade and I would become exhausted. Part of my job was reading aloud as we editors read to each other when proofing. I could no longer do that. It was very frustrating because being a former radio announcer and newscaster resulted in my having a very strong voice. My doctor prescribed speech therapy, which was embarrassing to go through. I can still sing, but not as well as I did before. I would not think of a solo anymore.
      I hope that she continues to progress very well, but then the young usually do. Thanks for sharing the happy news with us.

      So happy for you and Tegan. So nice to hear happy news, especially for a young person. Our young people are going through so much anguish and facing so much uncertainty.

      That's a good news. A really good news. I know you do not like me, but I came here because this thing is serious, and you might like that people respond to this serious issue. Looking forward to rival you on a HubPatron 2.0 contest. :-)

        It's not that I don't like you, I just don't like what you do. How can we get know you as a person if you are always deleting your account or acting like a troll?

        I've never entered a writing contest on HP. They don't really interest me.

    Thank you Kierstin and Linda.

    No we didn't know whether it was benign or otherwise. The possibility of cancer was made clear, but the consultant said it would be very rare in one so young. The longer we waited, the more I felt it would be okay. Otherwise they'd have called her back in long before now.

    Wonderful news.  I am so happy for you both.

    Thank you all so much.

    Doris, I am so sorry you went through this. It must be horrible. This was a follicular adenoma which (after consulting Google) develops on, but not part of, the thyroid. She's still got the left side intact, so hopefully, it will function normally.

    Yikes. I cannot imagine the agony of waiting weeks for results to come through. I had a basal cell carcinoma removed from my face a thousand years ago and the surgeon kept me on the table while he waited for the lab results; 30 minutes tops and I was good to go.

    Anyway, I'm glad to learn that your daughter is fine. Best wishes.
