Thanks for writing in.
You have a lot going on.

The thyroid cancer was most likely cured by hemithyroidectomy. The hilum fullness and blood in the urine are probably new problems unrelated to the thyroid cancer.

The hilum fullness needs to be evaluated with a test called a CT scan of the Chest. This will tell your doctor if there is truly an enlargement in your chest.

Trace blood in the urine may or may not be serious. It could be due to an infection, a false positive report or an issue with the kidneys. You need to see a urologist about this.
