> this term is meant only to mean Follicular cancer cells of the thyroid,


Yes it means follicular carcinoma.

snip>With thyroid cancer, the whole thyroid is ALWAYS removed,

This is NOT correct. I had papillary carcinoma confined to one lobe and

ONLY one lobe was removed.

Conservative surgery is practiced wherever possible to prevent causing

hypothyroidism - often the remaining gland can compensate if given time.
