Bryant Gumbel, the “Real Sports” host and former “Today” show anchor guest hosted “Live! With Regis & Kelly” this morning. While he was on, he announced that he was recently treated for lung cancer.

While stating that he would not be able to dance with a guest on an upcoming show, Gumbel explained why: “Two months ago, I had cancer surgery,” he explained. “They opened up my chest. They took a malignant tumor and they took a part of my lung and some other goodies.”

The prognosis for 61-year old Gumbel is good as he told the audience, “The pathology on most of the stuff came up benign but enough of the aggressive cells had escaped the tumor that it warranted some treatment,” he continued. “I went through that and it’s done now.”

Glad things are on the mend for you, Bryant. – Dr.FB

    when you smoke too much, then you are at risk from lung cancer so stay away from developing a bad habit of cigarette smoking ‘*’

    lung cancer can be avoided if you stay out of air pollutants like some chemicals and tobacco smoke.-“-

    Is he a smoker? I’m just curious as I hear of so many non smokers with lung cancer it’s kind of ironic. Not suggesting smokers deserve anything as terrible as this but always less of a suprise, I hope the surgery has done the trick and BG makes fast recovery x
