Big revelation from Christina who beat thyroid cancer
Pay attention to physical symptoms, change may be a sign of illness
Instantly recognizes weak hair, fatigue and dry skin
New York. American Christina McKnight has made important revelations about thyroid cancer. She said that when she was 27, she was found to have thyroid cancer. When she was young and fit and considered herself perfectly healthy. No one in his family had cancer, there was no family history of this disease. The thyroid, an important gland in the body, is found in the neck. It produces hormones that regulate metabolism, energy level, heart rate and body temperature.
Christina said there are 4 important symptoms to watch out for and they should never be ignored. In the Facebook reel, he said I had mild symptoms for several weeks and ignored them. But my husband Matthew McKnight forced me to go to the doctor. I felt like due to my promotion in the job, I had more work on me and because of that there was a change. Christina wrote in her post that I really needed to go to the doctor. My husband felt that I was struggling a little too much with all the symptoms. McKnight said she believed her symptoms were due to stress after receiving a promotion. However, fatigue, brain fog, dry skin, and brittle hair were all signs of something more sinister.
I was healthy, ran a half marathon, never thought I’d get cancer
According to Independent, Christina said no one in my family had cancer or thyroid issues. I had never even thought of cancer. I was young, fit and healthy. I ran a half marathon and did CrossFit for three years. Even when I started feeling tired and feeling like I was in a brain fog, I thought it was because of my promotion. Christina said that luckily my doctor recognized the symptoms, listened to my words, and performed a thorough examination. He had already treated a patient with thyroid cancer a few days ago. The doctor found a lump on my neck that I knew nothing about. Treatment began as soon as the disease was identified. When the ultrasound and biopsy reports came in, the thyroid was confirmed to be cancer.
It is also difficult to prepare for treatment
Christina said that after being diagnosed with cancer, when it was said that the thyroid, an important gland in the body, had to be removed, I could not prepare myself at all. Well, he must have been taken out after an operation. This was followed by radioactive iodine ablation treatment. So that all remnants of the gland can be removed. A year later, she is back in shape. However, she now has to undergo thyroid replacement injections to replace the hormones.
