      I wish this had been around when I was diagnosed. One question, how early should my children be screened for thyroid disease?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hi there,

      Well first of all I am glad you are doing well and I want to welcome you to the forum. Is there lots of cancer in the family? Most cancers are sporadic and not familial. If there is not a lot of cancer in the family then no specific screening is required. The mammogram, colonoscopy and pap smears should be done as recommended per guidelines.
