Suggest treatment for thyroid cancer

Hi, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and had radio iodine treatment April 16, I had a TG test and got the results today and they showed up under 20 and anti bodies at 11. Is this something to worry about as I had my thyroid removed and should there be any TG in my body?

Hi There

After going through your query I understand your concern.

I would like to tell you that after total thyroidectomy , level of Thyroglobulin (TG) fall and mostly undetectable. Thyroglobulin levels are used to detect thyroid cancer recurrence, as an increase after thyroidectomy likely comes from thyroid cancer cells. Standered value of Thyroglobulin is 3-40ng/mL with a normal functioning Thyroid Gland.

Kindly consult with your Oncologist regarding your report.

Hope to have been helpful.

Kind Regards
Dr. Navneet Bansal
