Sofia opens up about cancer diagnosis at just 28
The Modern Family star quietly battled cancer after being diagnosed at age 28.
Vergara was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2000. The mother of one had her thyroid removed, underwent radioiodine therapy, and made a full recovery.
According to Hello Magazine, the Colombian actress opened up about her cancer diagnosis during a Stand Up to Cancer charity telethon.
“At 28 years old during a routine doctor’s visit, my doctor felt a lump in my neck,” she said. “They did a lot of tests and told me finally I had thyroid cancer. When you’re young and you hear the word ‘cancer’, your mind goes to so many places but I tried not to panic and I decided to get educated.”
The Modern Family star continued: “I read every book and found out everything I could about it. I was fortunate to have caught it early and to have the support of my doctors and most importantly, my family.”
