Robin Quivers of the Howard Stern Show May Have CancerBy: Rich Ord - May 14, 2012
Robin Quivers, the co-host of the Howard Stern Show, announced on air this morning that she may have cancer. She has an appointment today with a specialist to determine if a growth she has pressing on her bladder is cancerous or not.
Over the weekend while travelling she came to the realization that while she had the urge to urinate, her body wasn’t releasing any fluids. She frantically went to an Urgent Treatment location hoping to gain quick relief. They inserted a catheter which involves a tube connecting to the bladder and a plastic bag holding the urine attached to her leg. She then went to a local hospital where they conducted a CAT scan of her abdominal area. The radiologist found a grapefruit sized growth pressing on her bladder causing a complete blockage and making urination impossible. Remarkably she was on SiriusXM radio live with Howard Stern at 6 AM today.
Quivers was in good spirits and even related her own TSA horror story. On the way back to New York she walked through the security scanners causing the alarm to go off. During a special screening she had to tell the female TSA agent that she had a colostomy bag attached to her leg.
Stern joked that he would quit Sirius if Robin dies! He also did a humorous impression of his parents on their reaction of possibly listening to the live broadcast and hearing that Robin might have cancer. He mimicked his father saying, “What…. Robin has cancer!
