Anupam Kotwal, MBBS, speaks with the crew of NBC's Today Show as he tells his story of discovering his own thyroid cancer.

Anupam Kotwal, MBBS, is part of the med center’s team of endocrinologists. But Dr. Kotwal, along with help from his colleagues, did something few doctors will ever do. He discovered his own thyroid cancer — the very same cancer he often diagnoses and treats in his patients.

Dr. Kotwal, also an assistant professor in the UNMC Department of Internal Medicine’s Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism, became the subject of a national story featured on NBC’s Today Show.

See how Dr. Kotwal has used this experience to be a better doctor for his patients, a better researcher in the lab and how he experienced firsthand the benefit the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center provides to those in need of cutting-edge care in this brief video.

Watch the story from Kate Snow of NBC News on the Today Show.
