Before being diagnosed with thyroid cancer I had no idea how fast your life could change. I went from being in a good mood while sitting on the couch one night, to touching my neck, finding the lump, googling what it could be, and realizing what it was before seeing a doctor.
How long can someone go without knowing they have cancer? It drives me crazy thinking about how long I had cancer before I found out. And while cancer does run in the family, as it does most families, I never thought I would have it, especially at 29.
