2/99 Surgery: Left Thyroid lobectomy indicating thyroid CA w/Hurthle Cell Diff w/papillary CA & positive thyroglobulin. Vertebral body & epidural space METS + 6th, 7th & partial 9th rib resection indicating MET thyroid CA.
3/26/99 Surgery: Additional rib resection + rt. Chest wall 8 cm x 6 cm mass pathology:   thyroid CA. Right kidney nephrectomy w/multiple tumors: mixed clear cell & granular renal cell primary CA
12/2001 PET Scan: Multiple hypermetabolic foci: Right, left upper & middle lung zones, right hilar area, right anterior ribs, proximal right femur consistent with bone marrow METS, superior & medial to right kidney suggesting adrenal gland involvement, pelvic uptake, right lateral basal segment of lung, uptake in the right & left residual area of both lobes of thyroid, left lobe of liver and additional foci in the mediastinal area.
