“During a check-up earlier this month, my doctor ordered a biopsy on an area of concern in my neck and the test revealed that I had thyroid cancer,” Sanders said in a statement.
Dr. John Sims, a surgeon at CARTI Cancer Center in Little Rock, said Sanders was treated for Stage I papillary thyroid carcinoma.
“Sarah is currently recovering from surgery in which we removed her thyroid gland and some of the surrounding lymph nodes in her neck,” he said in a statement.
“The surgery went extremely well, and I expect her to be back on her feet even within the next 24 hours.”
He added that her diagnosis is “the most common type of thyroid cancer and has an excellent prognosis.”
“While she will need adjuvant treatment with radioactive iodine, as well as continued long-term follow-up, I think it’s fair to say she’s now cancer free, and I don’t anticipate any of this slowing her down,” Dr. Sims said.
