Hello everyone I'm new here my name is Corina.In answer to your question here's a great website to check out for this type of Cancer: http://thyroid.about.com/od/thyroidcancer/a/anaplastic.htm.Also would like to share my story.I went to the Doctor in Dec.2010 because i was feeling tired all the time,And noticed a lump on my neck.Well after sending for an Ultrasound of my Thyroid it was revealed I had 4 lumps/solid nodules.I was then referred to a endocrinologist who has scheduled me for 4 Biopsies on 03/16/2011.I am so scared and nervous about all this.I hate needles!Doctor said he will be numbing the skin before the procedure.Still i'm terrified!Has anyone else had this done maybe can share there experiences with Thyroid Biopsies?Also I will let you all know how mine turns out. Thanks,Corina
