I don’t think there are false alarms in Cowden Syndrome.

But who knows, maybe?

In continuing from yesterday’s appointment, I also have elevated liver enzymes.

…<breathe>…

I have a fatty liver.  Have had for many years.

And, to my knowledge, I don’t think liver cancer is associated with Cowden Syndrome.

But, I don’t know much.

Who knows, maybe?

My doctor said that I know more than him when it comes to this Hereditary Cancer Syndrome.

I “joked” with him that I would be the first patient to present with liver cancer.  Like Chandler, I make jokes when I’m uncomfortable.

And, I’m not entirely convinced I won’t be.

So between my thyroid and liver, I feel a heavy burden upon my shoulders.  Heavy.

  •  My understanding is that maybe my liver enzymes will be back to normal soon.  The next step on the agenda is to have them retested in December.  If the results are still high, then an ultrasound and (possible?) hepatitis blood panel among whatever else my doctor wants/needs will be next.
  • There’s a possibility that my detectable thyroglobulin was a fluke as well.  I’m getting that rechecked in a few hours and if (when?) the levels are normal that’s a fantastic thing.  But, doesn’t explain away the new tissue in the right lobe area of where my thyroid used to be.

Happy Freaking Friday to you, dear Readers!  ❤
