Undergoing Thyroid Cancer Surgery

Television journalists (and women in particular) often get unsolicited comments about their looks — but in Deborah Norville’s case, they may have saved her life.

The Inside Edition host announced Monday that she will undergo surgery to remove a cancerous thyroid nodule that was brought to her attention by an eagle-eyed viewer.

Norville, 60, said the lump was initially non-cancerous.

“We live in a world of see something, say something, and I’m really glad we do,” she said in a video announcement. “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. Well, I’d never noticed the thing, but I did have it checked out and the doctor said it was nothing, a thyroid nodule.”

Norville said that it has since morphed into cancer.

“For years, it was nothing. Until recently, it was something,” she said. “The doctor says it’s a very localized form of cancer, which tomorrow, I’ll have surgery to have remove. There will be no chemo, I’m told no radiation; but I will have surgery and I’ll be away for a bit, so Diane will be holding down the fort.”

The mom of three asked that people keep her in their thoughts tomorrow.

“If you believe in prayer, please say one for me and for my surgeon, and I thank you very much,” she said. “I’ll be away for a little bit, but I do hope you’ll tune in to Inside Edition every day. Until then, thanks for watching.”
