Television personality Elisabeth Hasselbeck is used to talking about the day's hot topics on 'Fox & Friends.'
But today she was speaking about something much more personal: her health.
Elisabeth, 37, returned to the talk show this morning after an unexplained, month-long absence to reveal she had undergone surgery to remove a tumor from her abdomen.
Though the former 'The View' co-host said she has had a "scary week" as she nervously awaited test results to see if the tumor was cancerous, she told her fellow anchors that her doctors have now given her a clean bill of health.

The mom-of-three became emotional as she continued to explain that doctors found the tumor last month and recommended she undergo an emergency surgery to remove the possibly cancerous mass on Oct. 15.
"We had real serious talks at home and honest ones with the kids," she told viewers at the start of the program on Friday, Nov. 14.
