"I totally recommend getting the organ scans. It really saved my life."

I have almost always taken advantage of company physicals, blood tests, breathing tests that are given to employees in the workplace. I usually get the results back, your cholesterol is a little on the high side. This was the first year that the County offered organ scans. My gall bladder had been removed so I decided to get the scans. The thyroid scan showed I had a nodule on my left side of about 3.8 centimeters and the right was about 2. I had just has a physical so I thought it was strange that the doctor hadn’t said anything. I was told to go see an ear, nose throat doctor for this. He ordered an ultrasound and then a biopsy. The doctor said it wasn’t cancer but it had to come out. It had grown to 4.2 centimeters by then. I was sent to a surgeon and he scheduled my surgery. They removed my left side and biopsied it. To the doctors surprise they found cancer. He told me the whole time I didn’t have cancer but the biopsy showed different. I totally recommend getting the organ scans. It really saved my life.
