The MSNBC anchor said she’s going to be “absolutely fine” after getting a cancerous mole removed from her neck last week. Maddow took a few days off following the small procedure at a New York hospital and told viewers that the doctors “got all of it” and that she’s “going to be totally fine.”
“Even the skin cancers that are the deadliest skin cancers in this country — those too — are way more treatable than they used to be,” Maddow said. “On one condition: That you get them early.” She said that treatment has improved “leaps and bounds” in recent years.
She credited her longtime partner, Susan Mikula, for spotting the mole’s changing appearance on her neck.
