Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,
Board Certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you suffered with thyroid cancer. Thyroid, blood cell and skin cancer are the three most common cancers post radiation exposure. Since your exposure was more than two years ago, if you were to develop other problems from the radiation exposure, they would already have surfaced. The eyelid thinning is not a sign of cancer, so don't be concerned. The only medical treatment is to maintain a TSH level so that your thyroid replacement medication is controlled.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
You are welcome. Not the problem you mentioned, eyelid thinning.
Eyelids droop slightly as one gets older, but you are 18. I don't consider that as "older."
