Tiktoker “Seattle Tech Bro” is actually talking about financial and tech tips on the video platform. But the latest viral video of the 22-year-old is all about his health. Because he kept receiving news of a worrying swelling in his neck. His followers advised him to see a doctor.
This is what the young man from Seattle (USA) did. Then he posts a video “Tiktokers told me I could get cancer – and they were right,” he says.
On the advice of his fans, the 22-year-old underwent numerous tests and ultrasounds. Doctors found a mass in the thyroid gland that was 95% likely to be cancerous.

The Tiktoker explains in the video that his doctor gave him the choice. He had the option of removing the entire thyroid gland – or just the cancerous part. “I decided to take out the cancerous piece only in the middle,” he told his followers.
There is a small patch on his neck. He says, “It’s hard to talk. It’s kind of exhausting when I talk so much.” Therefore, he will communicate with Tiktok less at first. The video has been watched by more than a million people.
He is very grateful to the people who drew his attention to the knot on his neck. With the words: “Thank you for your patience and I am so glad to see you again soon,” he ends the video. (European Union)
