Brooke Burke-Charvet, co-host of the popular "Dancing With the Stars" television program, has recently announced that she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Burke revealed the news in this video. The 41-year-old mother of four told how a thyroid nodule had been detected, but she delayed followup evaluation. After various tests and a fine needle aspiration biopsy, the diagnosis of thyroid cancer was confirmed. Burke will undergo a thyroidectomy -- surgery to remove her thyroid gland -- as part of her treatment. Since Brooke has made a public announcement, I felt that it would be a good time to reach out to her and to all newly diagnosed thyroid patients -- including those with thyroid cancer -- with support and information.
