The host of a popular American television tabloid show will undergo surgery to remove thyroid cancer, spotted for the first time not by a doctor but by one of her regular viewers.
"Inside Edition” anchor Deborah Norville says in the video above that she will soon have surgery to remove a cancerous nodule on her neck first noticed by a fan.
“You know we live in a world of see something, say something. And I’m really glad we do," Norville says in the video, posted yesterday to the “Inside Edition” YouTube channel.
“When you work on television, viewers comment on everything: your hair, your makeup, the dress you’re wearing. And a long time ago, an ‘Inside Edition’ viewer reached out to say she’d seen something on my neck. It was a lump."
“The doctor says it’s a very localized form of cancer.”
“Which tomorrow I’ll have surgery to have removed.”
Norville says her oncologist has not recommended chemotherapy or radiation, “But I will have surgery and I’ll be away for a bit, so Diane [McInerney] will be holding down the fort.”
Some 50,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with thyroid cancer each year.
