Newswoman Amy Robach battling second cancer

News anchor Amy Robach has discovered she is battling a double cancer issue while undergoing a bilateral mastectomy this week (end22Nov13).

The ABC News presenter went public with her health crisis earlier this month (Nov13) after revealing a mammogram she took as part of a TV piece had detected breast cancer.


The former Today show host on NBS has now revealed medics discovered another previously undetected malignancy during surgery.


In a post to ABC News on Friday (22Nov13), she wrote, "No MRI, no mammogram, no sonogram had found it... I will have more treatments ahead of me, but none that will take me out of work.


"My prognosis is good. As of right now, I plan to head back into the building Monday, Dec. 2, and I couldn't be more excited to get back to work."
