If your FNAC report says Papillary neoplasm then surgical removal of the thyroid gland(total thyroidectomy) with post operative radio-iodine therapy would bve best course of action. unnecessary delay may lead to local/ systemic spread of disease. Timely intervention has good cure rates.Medical treatment not known to be curative. and not the protocol for this type of malignancy.
