Brooke Burke-Charvet's thyroid surgery has proved successful after test results revealed she is now cancer-free.

After announcing her health crisis in November, the "Dancing with the Stars" host underwent a life-saving procedure where her thyroid gland was removed last week. The mother of four has kept fans up to date on her condition ever since.

On Wednesday, the former Venus swim suit model shared good news.

"I just got the results back from all of my tests and great news- the thyroid cancer has been removed from my body and my lymph nodes are clear," Burke-Charvet posted to her blog on Modernmom.com.

Following the surgery, Burke-Charvet reassured fans she was on her way to recovery.

"I'm resting, recovering. Surgery went well. Dr. Adashek is a genius," the model posted to her almost 2 million followers the day after her procedure. "Thx Dr! Feels like I got hit my [by] a car."

"Thank God it's over." Burke-Charvet added. "I'm clean, surgery went well & I can talk. Losing my voice was my biggest fear. Thx for all your prayers & light."

The 41-year-old television personality revealed her cancer last month. Burke-Charvet admitted that she was relying on a positive attitude as well as the support from fans and complete strangers who "have stopped me in the past month to share their thyroid scars & stories," she said in a YouTube video.

"I need to have thyroid surgery and thyroidectomy, which means I'm going to have a nice, big scar right here across my neck," Burke-Charvet revealed at the time. "I'm just going to make a positive out of this negative thing. I'm going to be a really good patient, and I'm going to do everything that I need to do."

After the successful surgery, she later added to Twitter: "Thx for all the twitter love," on Sunday. "I'm Hm recovering & resting. Just put my babies to bed & I'm right behind them."

The former host of E!'s television series "Wild On" also relieved fans by noting that her recovery is progressing even further earlier this week.

"I know I'm still recovering but 2 night, vino, fried calamari & beef carpaccio were my best medicine," wrote the model. "It's a good sign! I had to get out."

Burke-Charvet is married to "Baywatch" actor David Charvet. The pair shares two children in addition to two children from the "DWTS" host's first marriage.
