Ultrasound at the Mall

For all of you that think that little ultrasound machine at the mall is a rip off, it found my thyroid cancer. I paid about $100 for a screening and they did a thyroid ultrasound. They found an unusual growth on my thyroid gland. I was referred to my general doctor for follow up. After all said and done I was diagnosed with medullary thyroid cancer. As anyone else had this experience?

My mom did one of those scans. They found multiple nodules on her thyroid. She had a complete thyroidectomy. No cancer was found. She's doing well now.
