Victoria Price says she is "on the road to recovery" after a health scare discovered by a viewer potentially saved her life. The reporter's story went viral last month.


Floridian reporter Victoria Price is thankfully doing much better after a cancer scare last month put her under the knife at her neck. Price spoke to "Today" with an update about her recovery.

The broadcast journalist's story went viral because it was a viewer who pointed out Price's swollen neck. The viewer had had cancer before and showed the same symptom. She warned Price, who took it to heart.

In her interview this week, though, Price explained that she initially was going to dismiss the fan's warning. When she showed the message to her boyfriend, he is the one who said there was no harm in checking it out.

Soon enough, Price was undergoing surgery to remove a tumor and some cancerous lymph nodes. Today, she says she is "feeling surprisingly well" following her battle. She is also back to work.


She joked: "I look like I lost a knife fight, and I tell people I lost a knife fight." Price was speaking about her new neck scar after the surgery. Thanks to it, though, she's deemed herself "90% back to normal."

Her doctor is also looking forward to full recovery, and the official results are positive. Price is thankful for coming out on the other side with such good news and expresses gratitude for the support she received from so many.



The warning Price received last month happened while she was reporting about the novel coronavirus. As a reporter, Price was looking to help inform others and forewent her own self.

In a tweet, Price revealed what happened when a viewer emailed her about a lump on her neck that looked just like that of the viewer's some time back. Price made the announcement and thanked the viewer.

She wrote: "Had I never received that email, I never would have called my doctor. The cancer would have continued to spread. It's a scary and humbling thought."



The story is reminiscent of another viral incident in March when ABC news reporter Kaylee Hartung was diagnosed with COVID-19 after covering the pandemic through a trip to Seattle, Washington.

Hartung noticed symptoms four days after the trip and tried to work through them as she normally would. However, one day she woke up and knew something was wrong.

She was advised to get tested and received a positive result for the coronavirus. Hartung successfully recovered without any close calls and eventually went back to work.
