This whole thing with my thyroid has caught me a little off guard. I have always been exremely healthy and really don't feel like there is anything wrong (other than a little bit of a swollen neck, a few headaches, and a little tired). It will probably turn out that there really isn't very much wrong I just keep having this feeling that I should be prepared. It just seems weird to me that I am 19 and have things growing on my thyroid. There don't seem to be too many people on the forums that are my age, whether this is because people my age just don't care or because multinodular goiters are fairly rare in younger people I don't know, which kind of makes me nervous. I just really wish I could know exactly what is going on so I can be prepared. Many people in my family have been diagnosed with cancer so I guess I sometimes feel like I am just waiting for my own diagnosis.
