  • ABC News Nicole McGuinness discusses how she found out she had Thyroid cancer in an interview with ABC News

Take Dr. Erich Voigt, for example, who recently tracked down a woman he'd seen on a TV show because he noticed a suspicious lump in her neck.

To help the North Carolina resident with her search for that ideal beach house, she made an appearance on HGTV's "Beachfront Bargain Hunt".

Voigt said the specific asymmetrical appearance of the lump and "way of moving under the skin" when she spoke alerted him to the grave nature of her condition.

Nicole McGuinness was just diagnosed with thyroid cancer, but she may not have caught it without the help of a complete stranger who saw her on TV. She went to see a specialist, and eventually was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer.

"I felt obliged to let this person know", Dr Voigt told Inside Edition.

Hopefully, McGuinness will be successful in her fight against cancer once again - and her recovery will be all thanks to Dr. Voigt, whose quick thinking may just have saved a life. That's when Voigt saw the lump on her neck.

Apple Denies Receiving Data From Facebook
There's no judgement here, just insights, but you can set yourself limits for an app or category if you choose. The Apple CEO stated how iOS 12 and macOS Mojave will come with increased privacy and security for users.

That stranger was Dr. Erich Voigt, a head and neck surgeon based in NY who saw McGuinness on an HGTV show, noticed a lump on her neck, and posted about it on social media. "I wonder if she knows and hope it's benign", the doctor at NYU Langone Medical Center wrote.

"I am watching a TV show and notice this woman has a left thyroid mass".

Voight contacted McGuinness two weeks later and told her she should get a biopsy and a sonogram of the lump to check for cancer.

"She will be seeing a surgeon and getting appropriate treatment and I hope she will be cured!" He said he may never have found out in time that he had thyroid cancer if it weren't for a viewer who emailed him. "I can't express how grateful and thankful I am".

"Awesome power of Facebook and good people", said Voigt.

After the life-saving phone call, McGuinness came face-to-face with Voigt on "Good Morning America" on Tuesday.

In an interview with INSIDER, Voigt said hearing those words was a powerful experience.
