Dr. Erich Voigt, a New York-based ear, nose and throat surgeon from NYU Langone Health, used social media to get the message to McGuinness that she needed to get a sonogram and a biopsy.

Even as he didn't know the woman's last name, the doctor refused to ignore the symptom and made a decision to track her down.

"The woman was notified by people who saw my post, fantastic power of Facebook!".

"I was relaxing after a day of work, watching handsome beach houses and day-dreaming", Voigt told the New York Post. "She needs a sonogram and fine needle biopsy", Voigt posted on his Facebook page.

"I have gone through a lot these past couple of years, and never expected to have to be a two-time cancer survivor, but without you keeping a vigilant eye and watching that show, who knows how long I would have gone on without that being checked", she told Voigt. "I felt obliged and sort of guilty, like I should let her know", he said.

A woman appeared on the show called "Beachfront Bargain Hunt" on HGTV little knowing that one of the viewers of the show will help her get diagnosed with a life-threatening disease. McGuiness says she is now undergoing treatment and plans to stay in touch with Dr. Voigt.

"She was unaware that she had a mass", Voigt wrote in another post on June 3.

McGuinness is scheduled to meet with doctors at Duke late this week to discuss the next step in her treatment process.

"It's just a miracle, in my opinion, that he happened to see this on television", McGuinness told ABC News.
