Bryant Gumbel is Being Treated for Lung Cancer

Former Today show anchor Bryant Gumbel is being treated for lung cancer, he told Kelly Ripa.

“They took part of my lung and they took some other goodies,” Bryant, 61, said on Live with Regis & Kelly on Tuesday.

“The pathology on most of the stuff came back benign,” he said, “but enough aggressive cells had escaped the tumor that it warranted some treatment.”

“I went through that and it’s done now.”

Bryant also shared that he’ll be seeing his surgeon next week but is okay for the time being, saying he hopes he gets clearance to play golf again soon.

All our best to Bryant and his family – here’s hoping for a speedy recovery!
