Dancing With The Stars Brooke Burke Reveals Cancer Diagnosis (VIDEO)

This is intense. Dancing with the Stars co-host, Brooke Burke shares some bad news with her fans. She’s been diagnosed with thyroid cancer and will be needing surgery.

It’s a difficult and surprising diagnosis for her, but she promises that she’s “going to make a positive out of this negative thing.”

Get well soon Brooke!

    If you have to have cancer, this is one of the best ones to have.  Excellent recovery/survival rate with few/no aftereffects.  Brooke might gain a bit of weight but that’s no big deal.  Easy surgery, quick recovery, with a pill to take the rest of her life but that’s okay too. 

    Best of luck to her.

    My best friend had this and it is really pretty easy. And the scar has faded a lot. You would barely know it is there after 2 years.

    Oh Brooke :(((

    I’m glad to hear the prognosis is good. Cancer is such an evil disease that has affected so many. I will be keeping her in my thoughts and sending good vibes her way.

    Yes, I was thinking the same thing – thyroid cancer is usually beatable, it just messes with your metabolism, she may look a lot fuller in the face but weight is the least of her worries at this point.

    I wish her the best with her surgery and recovery. A cancer diagnosis is never easy.

    I had my thyroid removed last March for the same diagnosis. I was a bit freaked out, but my doctor said the same thing that you pointed out. I haven’t had any side effects at all. I wish her well, and while the word cancer is scary, she should recover just fine.

    I’m pretty sure that Dr. Joel Wallach (of “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie” fame) could save Brooke’s thyroid and neck.  Google him, Brooke.  What have you got to lose?
