My daughter with FAP had her colon removed in 2012. In 2013 she developed hyperthyroid. She was treated for 2.5 years and the hyperthyroid condition disappeared. She was asymptomatic for a year and the symptoms returned. She had moved to another city and sought treatment from an endocrinologist there who sent her for an ultrasound because FAP has increased incidence of thyroid cancer. Her ultrasound shows 2 nodules, one heterogeneous solid at 1 cm and one hypoechoic at .5 cm.
The endocrinologist wants to follow up in 4 months. Is it safe to wait? I am having trouble finding recommendations specific to FAP other than a 160% chance of cancer for young FAP females over the general population.
Thanks for any input.
