I'll try not to make this sound dumb but I only know a little of the facts. My daughter's friend who is 17 just went in with her mother and they both had their thyroids removed. This was supposed to be because of a possible cancer possibility which is supposed to be hereditary. After removal the girl's test has come back negative from what she says, she now has to face a lifetime of medication. I was just wondering if this sounds straight up or is this another case of modern medicine or panic parenting?
