Is it bad that i'm thinking about removing my thyroid?
I'm 23 years old, and I've had a thyroid problem since I was 13. and my dad wants me to keep my thyroid so the doctors can do more tests on it in a year. but I have 2 lumps on it. the first 1 is clearly visible and the 2nd one is a bit farther. and me, my bf, grandma, and doctor want to have surgery to take it out.. I'm just nervous because I know once I get it removed I will have to take thyroid meds for the rest of my life. is it safe for someone my age to have their thyroid removed?
