Sofia Vergara's Endocrinologist, Dr. Jordan Geller, joined Tom and Laura Tuesday morning to talk about hypothyroidism.

Dr. Geller spoke about teaming with Vergara to bring awareness to hypothyroidism. The "Modern Family" actress was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2000 and had the gland removed.

Dr. Geller reviewed some of the symptoms of the disease, and touched on the difference between thyroid cancer and hypothyroidism.

"Thyroid cancer can be treated with surgery, which in turn can remove the thyroid gland and cause somebody to become hypothyroid, but having hypothyroidism itself does not mean somebody has thyroid cancer," said Dr. Geller.
