Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Angie Everhart has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer ... and will undergo surgery tomorrow, this according to Everhart's rep.

"Word has been trickling out about [Angie's] health," the rep told "Extra" ... "[Angie] wants to set the record straight by letting everyone know that it is true that she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, however, the prognosis is very good."

The rep adds, "[Angie] will undergo surgery tomorrow and expects to be back to work and to mommy duties in a few weeks."

Everhart's rep says ... the model hopes releasing the information about her health will "encourage people to learn about cancer prevention, its signs and treatment immediately.”

Wow, I am having the same surgery tomorrow. 2nd one. They remove the left lobe due to a nodule. Which was found to be papillary carcinoma

Now they are removing the right. May need the iodine in a week. It is only a one time pill that will destroy any thyroid tissue.

Hope she just has both lobes removed at once. Much easier recovery.

In 2004 i had my thyroid and parathyroid glands removed for cancer. its ok now. i just use a synthetic thyroid hormone for the remainder of my life.... it is a very tiny blue bowtie shaped pill. no big deal anymore. It's one of the curable cancers.
