Tumor Surgery Goes 'Well' For Orlando TV Anchor

WKMG anchor Lauren Rowe came out of surgery an hour ago, WKMG-Channel 6 General Manager Skip Valet told the TV Guy, Hal Boedeker at the Orlando Sentinel  at 6pm Tuesday.

“Everything went well,” Valet said. “She is expected to go home tomorrow [Wednesday].”

Doctors had found a tumor on her thyroid. “There’s something growing that shouldn’t be there,” Rowe, 39, told Boedeker last week. “They have to remove the tumor to know if it’s malignant or benign. They will remove the tumor and half of the thyroid.”

Valet said that Rowe will return to the CBS affiliate as soon as she’s ready. “She intends to get back in the game as soon as possible,” he said.

"As long as everything goes well, I hope to be back within a week,” Rowe said last week.
