Sofia Vergara talks thyroid conditions, freezing her eggs

Sofia Vergara appeared on "Good Morning America" on Wednesday to discuss her bout with thyroid cancer, freezing her eggs and her wedding plans. The "Modern Family" actress, a spokeswoman for the hypothyroidism campaign Follow the Script, revealed that she was diagnosed with the disease in 2000. She had her thyroid gland removed and takes medication to deal with the condition. "Many women go for a long time without knowing that they have a problem with their thyroid," she said on the show. "And it [hypothyroidism] can bring many problems in their life. It changes your mood, it changes your fertility, it changes so many things and the sad thing is that it can be checked with a simple blood test. It's not like you have to go through a colonoscopy or something horrible." Full story: Sofia Vergara talks thyroid conditions, freezing her eggs | PHOTOS: Families that changed TV
