Thyroid Cancer Survivor Cynthia Colle – 11 Years in Remission

Ms. Cynthia Colle was 45 years old when she underwent total thyroidectomy.  She had multiple colloid adenomatous goiter with a small focus of papillary carcinoma.I just maintained her on thyroid replacement and suppressive therapy.  Then, symptom- and sign-surveillance (basically physical examination).  She is now 56 years old with no evidence of recurrence at 11 years postop. We both thank God for this long remission.  Ms. Colle gave her permission to tell her story in order to serve as an inspiration for other patients with thyroid cancer (especially those with papillary carcinoma on top of a multiple colloid adenomatous goiter) and patients with potential thyroid cancer.
