    MND and Cancer

    After being diagnosed with PMA in Jan 2020, a cancer was found in my thyroid at the same time.
    After two operations to remove my thyroid, and radioactive iodine treatment I am clear of the cancer.
    There seem to be more fuss about the cancer at the hospital than there was regarding MND however.
    I remember explaining to the cancer nurse who wanted to take blood, that I could not remove my coat because of my MND. Her face dropped and she said how sorry she was that I had MND and cancer. It cheered her up no end when I said cancer can be cured, MND can't.
    Diagnosed 2nd Jan 2020
    Both arms/shoulders affected, left worse than right.
    Progressive Muscular Atrophy suspected
