(AP) Dancing with the Stars co-host Brooke Burke says she has thyroid cancer.


Burke posted a video message Thursday on YouTube disclosing her condition and her plans for surgery to remove her thyroid.


The 41-year-old mother of four says a lump on her thyroid was found during a routine biopsy.


She says in the video that the surgery has been scheduled, but she doesn't specify when. She says it will leave a nice big scar right here, tracing a line across her throat.


Although initially shocked by the diagnosis, Burke says she now feels strong and confident and her doctors are optimistic. She vows to make a positive out of this negative thing.


Found in the front of the neck, the thyroid secretes several hormones that influence metabolism, growth and development.
