Brooke Burke-Charvet announced the results of her thyroid cancer diagnosis. The "Dancing with the Stars" co-host revealed to shock fans today that she indeed has the cancer.
Brooke said in the video, "I feel really good. I've never felt better. That's what's so crazy about this whole thing, and you never ever think that some tiny nodule, something that I didn't even know was going on in my body -- I went for a regular physical, and that's how I discovered this."
Burke-Charvet has been keeping her fans updated since July after a doctor found a lumb in her thyroid during an ultrasound.
CBS reported, "Thyroid cancer is a form of cancer that is found in the thyroid gland, an organ found at the bottom of your throat that helps make hormones that regulate heart rate, blood pressure, blood temperature and weight. There are several types of thyroid cancer including papillary carcinoma (which accounts for eight out of 10 diagnoses), follicular carcinoma (including kinds of Hurthle cell carcinoma), medullary thyroid carcinoma, anaplastic carcinoma, thyroid lymphoma and thyroid sarcoma."
Burke-Charvet is to undergo surgery. Thyroidectomy, she said, "means that I'm going to have a nice big scar right here across my neck. And, I don't get to just walk around and pretend that nothing happened and not follow up and not share it because it's going to be pretty much dead center."
