The viewer, Wendy McCoy from Werribee, Victoria, said she was not a doctor, but that Lattouf's clog reminded her of a friend who also had a cyst in her neck.
& # 39; I felt worried and thought I should say something, & # 39; wrote Mrs. McCoy.
Seeing the message, Lattouf looked back at her television section where she discussed the controversial sculptures of the Virgin Mary by artist Kyle Montgomery.
And yes, she saw a large lump protruding from the left side of her neck.
To write for 10 daily, she explained: “I was left shocked. It looked like I had an Adam's apple. Something definitely stuck out of my neck. & # 39;

Lattouf said she had a family history of thyroid cancer, so she went to the doctor.
After three blood tests, an ultrasound scan and a CT scan, she was diagnosed autoimmune disease a large cyst that needed surgery.
Lattouf explained that her cyst, just above her voting box, was not cancer, but even benign tumors can cause serious damage if they are not treated.
They can affect muscle strength, bone health, heart rate and can be fatal in extreme cases.
In a moving Instagram post, Lattouf thanked Mrs. McCoy for speaking.
& # 39; She wrote: Thanks for dear Wendy! & # 39;
