Erin Andrews Was Diagnosed With Cervical Cancer Last Year
Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports
In an interview with Sports Illustrated’s Emily Kaplan, FOX sideline reporter Erin Andrews revealed that she was diagnosed with cervical cancer last September. Per Sports Illustrated...

Andrews did not tell colleagues of her diagnosis. She worked that Sunday’s game, then flew home to L.A. She missed the Monday and Tuesday tapings of Dancing with the Stars; ABC said she took time off to support boyfriend (now fiancé) Jarret Stoll and his grieving family. (Stoll’s 17-year-old nephew had been killed in a car accident that weekend.) That, in part, was true. But Andrews was mostly dealing with her diagnosis.

Surgery was scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 11. Before she was wheeled into the operating room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Andrews gave strict orders to her oncologist: “I’m not watching any football games at home. This is [Fox’s] Super Bowl year, and I’m not missing the Super Bowl.”

“Let’s not worry about that right now,” said Stoll, who was by her side. “Let’s just get you better.”
Everything went well and her surgery was a success...

On Nov. 1, a Tuesday, she returned to Cedars-Sinai for another procedure. “This is it,” she told the oncologist. “Fourth-and-two, fourth quarter. Let’s do this.” On Nov. 17 the doctor called her: The margins were clear. There would be no need for radiation or chemotherapy.

Cervical cancer is about the easiest form of cancer to survive after skin cancer.

Cervical cancer is kind of vague. I think we need before and after photos of the cervix and the surrounding areas for comparison. #wanttoseethestruggle4real

My wife dealt with this exact same stuff. It's not a big deal at all. It's not even a real surgery. It's just a procedure, sometimes two procedures to make sure, they get it all.

People down voting you but you are probably right. Cervical cancer is such a vague term. I doubt she had anything like Holly Rowe
