"Its not a tumor".... Actually it is!

Ronny's results came in this afternoon. His thyroid cyst is benign and the doctor recommends he have it looked at again in 6 months. The other mass is a parathyroid tumor and his blood calcium level is elevated however only slightly. The doctor recommends he have it removed. Ronny is going to talk to a few other people and get their take on things before he calls the surgeon's office.

The results of the cyst were as we suspected, the tumor on the other hand was completely unexpected. I don't think either one of us are ready to jump into another surgery or another hospital visit. It certainly doesn't look like this is something life threatening so we'll gather as much information and get a few other opinions before making that decision.
