"Dancing with the Stars" co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet is staying positive and looking to the future after revealing that she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer.

"I need to have thyroid surgery and a thyroidectomy, which means I'm going to have a nice big scar right here across my neck," the 41-year-old said in a video posted on The ModernMom YouTube channel on Thursday.

In July, Brooke told her fans that doctors had found a nodule on her thyroid, but has remained mum on the subject until now.

"I don't get to just walk around and pretend like nothing happened or not follow up or not share it, because it's going to be pretty much dead center. I don't want anybody to read about it and get the wrong idea, or think that I'm sick, because I'm not," she continued in the video. "I got my results back days later and they were atypical, which means that the doctors couldn't confirm whether the nodule was cancerous or benign, So I had to go and do a whole bunch of additional tests and get second opinions. Long story long, I got my results back and they were not good."

The mother of four is now looking ahead and says she will beat the cancer.

"I've booked my surgery," she said. "It's taken me a couple of months to really wrap my head around this... Now I'm good. I'm ready to deal with it, and I'm going to be fine. I feel really, really strong. Doctors say this is a 'good' kind of cancer to have... My doctor did tell me this is a happily ever after ending kind of thing."

After announcing the news, she took to Twitter to express her gratitude for the outpouring of support from her fans.
