Radiation researcher in Ibaraki got two thyroid cysts
Fukushima Diary is following this radiation researcher of citizen.
(cf, [It happens] 0.60~0.80 μSv/h measured from a man in Ibaraki directly on his body [URL])
(cf, Radiation researcher “Social welfare service corporation for children stopped us from measuring radiation” [URL])
They had the thyroid test in Iwaki city Fukushima. The laboratory is “Iwaki citizens’ radiation measurement station -Tarachine”. It’s supported by the chief editor of Days Japan, Hirokawa and the citizens in Iwaki city.
The laboratory offers whole body counter test, food test and ultrasound scan of thyroid.
The result of the thyroid test shows the researcher has 4mm of a thyroid cyst on the right side and 2mm of a cyst on the left side.
The researcher has been in the highly contaminated areas. Unfortunately, he might have been affected.
Ils lui ont fait un examen de thyroïde à Iwaki dans Fukushima. Le laboratoire est le “Tarachine – Station de mesure de la radioactivité civile d’Iwaki”. Il est soutenu par le directeur de la publication du journal “Days Japan” d’Hirokawa et par les citoyens de la commune d’Iwaki.
Le laboratoire propose des examens complets du corps, des analyses d’aliments et des examens au scanner de la thyroïde.
Le résultat de l’examen de la thyroïde montre que le chercheur présente un kyste de 4 mm dans sa thyroïde côté droit et un autre de 2 mm côté gauche.
Le chercheur a été dans des régions très contaminées. Il a pu en être affecté, malheureusement.

About this site
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
