“Inside Edition” host Deborah Norville says she is so glad we live in a world of “see something, say something.”
In a video message to her viewers on Monday, Norville said that many years ago a viewer reached out to her and commented on something she saw. “It was a lump on my neck. Norville said, ‘You need to get it checked out.’”
At the time, Norville went to a doctor who said it was nothing – a thyroid nodule.
But, she continued to get the lump looked at.
UPDATE: Recently, Norville’s doctor told her it was something more concerning – a very localized form of cancer. Norville is having surgery TODAY (April 2).
Good News: She will not need to undergo chemotherapy or radiation.
“If you believe in prayer, please say one for me and for my surgeon
and I thank you very much,” Norville said.
