She explained she would not be undergoing chemotherapy, and was told she would not be treated with radiation, but she would "be away for a bit". But, she continued to get the lump looked at. "Well, I'd never noticed the thing, but I did have it checked out and the doctor said it was nothing, a thyroid nodule". And a long time ago an Inside Edition viewer reached out to say she'd seen something on my neck. In the message, Norville said it was thanks to one viewer's sharp eye that she went to her doctor in the first place.

The host, who joined "Inside Edition" in 1995, said colleague Diane McIrney will pitch in on the show while she seeks treatment. "I'll be away for a bit. until then, thanks for watching", she added.

"May God guide the hands of the Surgeon, May you have a speedy recovery. And I'm really glad we do", the star said.

"Sending you prayers, love and positive vibes", someone else said.

Much more spectacular were the videos shot by security cameras, dash cams and doorbell cams that quickly flooded the internet. The National Weather Service's Tallahassee forecast office tweeted images of the meteor showing up on a lightning map .

Norville tweeted early Tuesday saying she was "overwhelmed by the kindness and good wishes" she has received since she made the announcement. "Thank you all! #grateful", the star wrote.

Thyroid nodules are solid or fluid-filled lumps in the thyroid gland that the majority of the time doctors can not feel on patients.

Even though about half of people will get a thyroid nodule, like the one Norville had, before they are 60, less than five percent actually turn out to be cancerous, according to the Cleveland Clinic.
