CLEVELAND — When FOX 8’s Mark Zinni went for a routine physical, he didn’t suspect anything was wrong.
But a doctor took one look at him and knew otherwise.
After some tests, Mark was diagnosed with stage one thyroid cancer and had his thyroid removed.
He and Dr. Joyce Shin, an endocrine surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic, talked about his diagnosis on Fox 8 News in the Morning Tuesday.
The good news is the cancer is both treatable and curable.
Mark will have to take medicine for the rest of his life and will undergo some other treatments, but there is no chemotherapy or radiation in his future.
Mark invited any viewers that have questions or who are interested in connecting with him to contact him via Facebook.
He also thanked everyone for their support.
