Woman diagnosed with cancer after HGTV appearance 'forever grateful' for eagle-eyed doc

Nicole McGuinness, 31, recently appeared on an episode of HGTV's "Beachfront Bargain Hunt Renovation".

Nicole McGuinness was starring on Beachfront Bargain Hunt when Dr Erich Voigt noticed a concerning mass on her neck as he watched along at home.

One of Dr. Erich Voigt's Facebook followers suggested he inform the show's producers, so he sent them an email.

Nicole McGuinness's dream was to buy a house on the beach in SC and after successfully beating brain cancer, it was time to make her dream a reality, and her quest to find her new home wound up saving her life.

On Friday, her biopsy results came back, revealing she had thyroid cancer.

Voight, who has experience examining other patients with similar symptoms, noticed the lump on the woman's throat looked asymmetrical and moved in a way that anxious him. I wonder if she knows and hope it's benign.

He posted footage from the show on Facebook showing how Nicole had a thyroid mass.

Finally, after two weeks, Voigt got in touch with the 32-year-old woman, and strongly advised her to get a sonogram and a biopsy of the lump on her neck.

"It's just a miracle, in my opinion, that he happened to see this on television", McGuinness told ABC News. "I can't express how grateful I am".

McGuinness and the doctor met each other in Manhattan Tuesday to film a segment for Good Morning America. "Helping her was heartwarming and emotional", Voigt said. Dr. Voigt said in a follow-up post.
