Inside Edition host, Deborah Norville is going under the knife after a viewer noticed a lump on her neck. The lump turned out to be a cancerous thyroid nodule for which she is undergoing surgery and taking time off from the show.
“We live in a world of see something, say something, and I'm really glad we do. 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 lump was originally thought to be benign but recently, the doctor told that it was a localized form of cancer. The TV host asked for prayers before the surgery. She thanked fans through Twitter.
