Doctor spots cancer lump on NC woman on HGTV

After two weeks, the surgeon got in contact with Nicole and urged her to get a biopsy and a sonogram done on her throat.

A woman from North Carolina is now undergoing treatment for cancer after a doctor, who saw her on a television show with an odd lump on her neck, took a decision to find her, according to an ABC News report.

Erich Voigt, an ear, nose and throat surgeon in New York City, to thank for spotting what turned out to be thyroid cancer on her neck.

She met Voigt on Tuesday in Manhattan when filming a segment for "Good Morning America".

Because the show never gave her last name, Dr. Voigt was unsure how to contact McGuinness, and enlisted his Facebook friends to help the post go viral and somehow reach her.

"However then I seen the lump".

Voigt hopes that Nicole will beat cancer again, as they found it early, before showing symptoms.

He wrote on the location final month: "I'm watching a television present and spot this lady has a left thyroid mass".

According to Pew Research Center, 65 percent of Americans think it is essential that NASA stays involved in space exploration. Furthermore, 80 percent of Americans think the space station has been a good investment for the country.

As Nicole spoke, he could see a lump about the size of a strawberry nodding up and down at the front of her neck.

"As a head and neck surgeon, I'm trained to notice these things", he told ABC News.

Dr Voigt, who has examined thousands of patients with similar symptoms, said the lump had a specific asymmetrical look and "way of moving under the skin" when she spoke that anxious him.

Remarkably, Dr Voigt is not the first to diagnose someone he saw on TV.

In 2013, Tarek El Moussa, star of the network's show Flip Or Flop was diagnosed with thyroid cancer after a nurse spotted a lump in nearly the same spot on his neck.

"I'm going to try to say this without getting emotional".

"I thought, I don't think she knows she has this".

She said that she has an excellent and trusted oncology team at Duke University - plus, Dr Voigt "by [her] side".
