Doctor watching TV spots ominous looking lump on woman's throat

Dr. Erich Voight who is an ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeon happen in NY happen to watch a HGTV's "Beachfront Bargain Hunt" episode when she suddenly saw a lump on the neck of a women and immediately knew that she needed medical assistance.

The power of social media proved to be enough as word eventually reached Nicole McGuinness from Havelock in North Carolina. Although already a brain cancer survivor, McGuinness' doctors had not noticed the lump in her throat. She just let me know the biopsy revealed thyroid cancer. But then I noticed the lump.

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

He took to his Facebook handle and posted, "I am watching a tv show and notice this woman has a left thyroid mass". She wants a sonogram and advantageous needle biopsy.

"As a head and neck surgeon, I am educated to kind of discover this stuff", he mentioned.

Having no idea who the woman was or how to reach out to her, Voigt turned to social media.

McGuiness told ABC that it was just a miracle that Voight happened to see her on the show and that she "can't express how grateful" she is.

Further evidence that being on HGTV will save your life: Back in 2013, Tarek El Moussa, host of Flip or Flop was also diagnosed with thyroid cancer after a nurse watching his show alerted show producers to a lump on the host's throat.

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

The pair shared a hug as Nicole thanked the physician "from the underside" of her coronary heart.

Nicole credits her optimism for her survival through her glioblastoma battle, and says she will do the same this time around, staying positive and fighting.

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