The popular E! News and Style Network host, 36, told Today’s Ann Curry that she’s in the early stages of the disease.
Rancic — who’s married to former Apprentice winner Bill Rancic — said doctors discovered the tumor during a mammogram while she was undergoing another round of in-vitro fertilization in an effort to get pregnant.

She says her doctor insisted she undergo a mammogram even though she’s only 36 because the surge of hormones during pregnancy can accelerate cancer.
Rancic says she’ll undergo surgery this week and then have six weeks of radiation therapy. She also added that her prognosis is good, given that the cancer was detected early.
