E! Entertainment host Giuliana Rancic
has revealed she's been diagnosed with breast cancer, but fortunately doctors caught it early enough that it sounds like treatment should be effective.
It turns out Rancic has her fertility doctor to thank for the early diagnosis. She and husband Bill Rancic have been struggling with fertility issues, and her most recent doctor told her to get a mammogram before they began a new round of treatment.
"He said, 'I will not get you pregnant'" before a screening, "'because if you get pregnant it will accelerate the cancer, all the hormones will accelerate the cancer,'" she said Monday on the Today
show. She continued: "They called me the next day and told me, 'We need you to come back, we see something.'"
Rancic said doctors will perform surgery to remove the tumor later this week and after she's recovered she'll begin six and a half weeks of radiation therapy. She went on to thank her husband for letting her cry when she needs to, and said "I truly believe that God was looking out for me."
