On Wednesday, “Shark Tank” star Daymond John revealed he was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last year.
He told “Good Morning America's” Robin Roberts, "I had an extensive physical, and they discovered there was a nodule on my thyroid. They removed it and it was stage II cancer on my thyroid.”
Daymond isn't letting it slow him down. He said, “I didn't skip a beat. I understood that I had a challenge, and if I would attack it now, then I wouldn't have let it attack me, and I had that removed. I didn't miss anything. I was out partying and dancing two days later, not that I should've.”
Of his decision to reveal the news, John explained, "I wanted to share this information with people because what would I have went through if I decided to just stick my head in the sand and go, 'You know what? I'm not going to check into stuff.' I would've really had some big, big problems."
He says he's been feeling “absolutely great” since undergoing treatment, adding, "I have to monitor it for the rest of my life. I have another half of my thyroid still in. In the event it comes back, I will have to fight it."
