Fast forward to my friends with thyroid cancer, Graves, nodules, I'm like -- cool. Let's check it out. But shit, I've always had this damned Adams apple...so what gives.
What gives is the health system is ALWAYS trying to find something to get you hooked on. I get an ultrasound....a $373 ultrasound. They measure. They say ok.
Go back to my doctor a year later for a check up. She says...mmm lets measure again. It's pretty big. I'd like to see if it's grown...considering my age and all....
It's grown? How you know. I go for another ultrasound, they say they measured it and it's grown. I'm like ---- yous a lie.
I tell my doctor I think she's giving me the run around. She gives me some better safe than sorry shit. I go back yesterday to THE expert who's going to take an ultrasound and IF it looks crazy to him, get a biopsy. In 3 minutes he decides I don't need shit and that it's normal.
Now tell me....why wasn't I introduced to him in the next building the first time, verses racking up 3 additional ultrasounds??? Money. Fuckers. oooh The USA makes me tired.
