A well-known television anchor revealed on the air that she will be taking some time off to have surgery to remove a cancerous thyroid nodule on her neck. “Inside Edition’s” Deborah Norville discussed her health situation in a clip posted by the show, which you can watch below.
“We live in a world of ‘see something, say something,’ and I’m really glad we do,” Norville said. “When you work on television, viewers comment on everything — your hair, your makeup, the dress you wear, and a long time ago an ‘Inside Edition’ viewer reached out to say she’d seen something on my neck. It was a lump. Well, I’d never noticed the thing, but I did have it checked out and the doctor said it was nothing, a thyroid nodule. And for years, it was nothing. Until recently, it was something.”
Norville added: “The doctor says it’s a very localized form of cancer, which tomorrow I’ll have surgery to have removed. There’ll be no chemo, I’m told no radiation, but I will have surgery and I’ll be away for a bit. So Diane [McInerney] will be holding down the fort. If you believe in prayer, please say one for me and for my surgeon and I thank you very much. I’ll be away for a bit, but I do hope you’ll tune in to ‘Inside Edition’ every day. Until then, thanks for watching.”
