The usually rough and tough TV personality Nancy Grace broke into tears while describing the roller coaster of emotions she went through after a cancer scare that unfolded over the holiday season on Good Morning America Monday.

Grace, 51, had a solid mass growing in her doctors suspected could be the deadly disease, but a late November operation revealed it to be benign.

Asked by host Robin Roberts how she was feeling, an emotional Grace said, "I feel great from the moment I opened my eyes and I looked at my husband and said, 'It's not cancer ... there's no such thing as a bad day.’"

Her voice cracking, Grace said she'd been suspecting some health problems due to "irregular bleeding," then recalled her conversation with the doctor after a preliminary series of tests left her physicians fearing she had more than a 50 percent chance of cancer.

"Finally I said, 'Is it cancer?'" Grace said. "The doctor said, ‘There's a pretty good chance that it is.’"

She said she broke down when she saw her 3-year-old twins, John David and Lucy Elizabeth, after the diagnosis, and said she since has a renewed sense of spirit since finding out she's cancer-free.

Grace admitted she put off getting checked for more than a year because she was busy with professional obligations, and stressed that all women need to keep current on their medical status with regular check-ups.
