THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Vice President
Statement by Dr. Robert Udelsman Johns Hopkins Hospital
Tipper Gore's pathology results demonstrate a follicular adenoma of the thyroid gland. This is a benign process, and, therefore, Mrs. Gore does not have thyroid cancer. It is unlikely that Mrs. Gore will require thyroid hormone replacement, as she has a normal left thyroid lobe. We will follow her carefully to monitor her thyroid hormone levels. As of this morning, she is resting comfortably at home.
