what kind of doctor should i see to get my thyroid checked?

A good general family practitioner

Start with your primary care physician.

an endocrine doctor is the only doctor that can thoroughly check and diagnose thyroid,crohn's,diabetes,reye's...diseas… that are unseen.

You will need to see an Endrocrinologist. I would know...I have a hyperthyroid. Good luck!

You need to see and Endocrinologist-a doctor which specializes in the Endocrine system. The thyroid is a part of this system. Your primary care physician could be of some help but due to the fact that you have a family history of cancer an Endocrinologist would be your best bet... just to be on the safe side...Good luck...

Having Thyroid cancer (thyca), I first went to my regular doctor. I had a blood test taken and the thyroid hormone checked. Mine was 5.290, so that is on the high side. So she put me onto Synthyroid to lower my number down. I had already known that I had a nodule which was beign. She couldn't tell by feeling my neck to see if it had gotten any bigger, so I went down to get an ultrasound. There they found that I had developed more nodules in both lobes of the thyroid. I went back for the results and she scheduled me to have a biopsy. The results of that confirmed that there were cancer cells of papillary. Then I am sent to the ENT (ears, nose, throat) doctor/surgeon. He set up my surgery to remove my whole thyroid. That is sent to the pathologist to test to see about the cancer cells. I actually had two types of cancer. This last week I was sent to the ENDO, who schedules my radiation treatment, etc. I will be staying with him for quite a long time since he will have to monitor me, blood test, body scans, medication, etc. My ENT told me that a doctor would not have been able to feel the other nodules in my neck, so I am so greatful that she had me go down to ultrasound to check it. They were very small, less than an cm, and the doctor said that the radiologist who did the biopsy got the right spot. If he had missed, it would have come up beign, and then they wouldn't have done the surgery. So I was lucky. Now they will monitor me after the radiation to kill off any cancer cells that has gotten into my body.

I had no symptoms of coughing. I felt totally fine. The only reason why I was concerned about having my tested was that my son has the same thing as I do. So you want to get yours checked, My son's numbers on the blood test were normal, so don't go by that. Since your sister had it, do an ultrasound. Insist on it. My mom was tested and she has the nodules, but they are beign. My daughter is now going to have hers tested. I had papillary variant of follicullar carcinoma. Very easy treatable. There are acouple of aggressive types of thyroid cancer too that are not easy to treat.
