Howard Stern Show co-host Robin Quivers says she is undergoing tests to determine whether or not she has cancer.
Quivers made a disturbing discovery this weekend while she was attending a wedding in Pittsburgh. She woke up in the middle of the night and found that she was completely unable to urinate. After undergoing a CAT scan, doctors found a grapefruit-sized growth pressing on her bladder that may or may not be cancerous.
Quivers showed up for work at Sirius XM Monday morning wearing a catheter because of the condition, joking: “So, if you see me–I’m peeing.”
Quivers was positive, but matter-of-fact about the prospects:
“It could be something not so bad. It could be really bad….Hopefully it’s something that can just be cut out.”
Quivers states that she has had non-cancerous fibroid tumors in the past, and is hoping for the same diagnosis this time. Quivers has been Stern’s on-air partner for more than thirty years, and the King of All Media balked at the idea of ever being on air without her.
“I’ll kill you if you have cancer,” joked Stern. “Think of me for once. You’ll be dead and I’ll still have to do the show.”
