Hi I rarely comment on blogs but, I had a tumor on my parathyroid and nodules on my thyroid. My thyroid has been giving me so many problems for years and the doctors were and are not helping me. I thought I would have them removed and feel better. That didn't happen. I had the surgery and I feel worse plus a scar across my throat.
I've been reading about Serrapeptase enzymes and one of the benifits were to disolve tumors. I would have tried this approach first if I would have known about them at the time.
Good Luck!

You might want to go to a website called It stands for Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association.There is a lot of information about the thyroid there and they have online support groups where you can discuss things you are experiencing. I found this website after I had my thyroid removed 3 years ago. I wish I had found it before I had my surgery because there is a wealth of information there and I had trouble finding things easily before I had my surgery. My surgery turned out well and luckily I had an all female surgery team including the anesthesologist so even though my incision was larger than normal by about 2 inches, it was placed nicely in a fold of skin so as I age it will be hidden in a wrinkle. I am so grateful. lol.
