Brooke-Burke Charvet Brooke Burke-Charvet revealed on Thursday that she has thyroid cancer.
The Dancing with the Stars host said on The ModernMom YouTube channel:
"I need to have thyroid surgery and a thyroidectomy, which means I'm going to have a nice big scar right here across my neck. I don't get to just walk around and pretend like nothing happened or not follow up or not share it, because it's going to be pretty much dead center. I don't want anybody to read about it and get the wrong idea, or think that I'm sick, because I'm not."
Brooke discovered the news after a regularly scheduled physical:
"I got my results back days later and they were atypical, which means that the doctors couldn't confirm whether the nodule was cancerous or benign. So I had to go and do a whole bunch of additional tests and get second opinions. Long story long, I got my results back and they were not good."
Still, she's staying positive and moving forward with her treatment:
"I've booked my surgery. It's taken me a couple of months to really wrap my head around this. … Now I'm good. I'm ready to deal with it, and I'm going to be fine. I feel really, really strong. Doctors say this is a 'good' kind of cancer to have. … My doctor did tell me this is a happily ever after ending kind of thing."
