Viewer Spots Canerous Lump On Deborah Norville
Deborah Norville is used to having her looks scrutinized as a television personality, but one comment from a concerned viewer proved to be a life-saver, reports USAToday.
The "Inside Edition" host revealed that she will undergo surgery to remove a cancerous thyroid nodule that a sharped-eyed viewer brought to her attention.
"We live in a world of see something, say something, and I'm really glad we do," she said in a video announcement posted on the show's official YouTube account Monday.
Norville continued: "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."
Norville said doctors initially deemed the thyroid nodule benign, but the lump eventually grew cancerous, requiring medical treatment.
The television host asked for prayers for herself and her surgeon ahead of the procedure, encouraging viewers to "tune in to 'Inside Edition' every day" despite her absence.
"I thank you very much. I’ll be away for a bit … until then, thanks for watching," Norville added.
