Fran Drescher speaks out about cancer

May 4, 2009 (CHICAGO) Drescher is perhaps best known as the star of the TV series "The Nanny."

She spoke at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists annual clinical meeting at McCormick Place.

The actress talked about her own battle with uterine cancer and how it took a long time for her to get a correct diagnosis.

"I had symptoms that went on for two years and eight doctors, up and down the road I was misdiagnosed for a peri-menopausal condition I didn't have," said Drescher.

Drescher urges patients to ask their health professionals questions. She will be guest on Tuesday morning on our news at 11 a.m.
