E! Network anchor Giuliana Rancic said Monday she has been diagnosed with an early form of breast cancer.

Rancic, 37, expects full recovery, after some surgery and six and a half weeks of radiation treatments, according to an interview aired on NBC's "Today" show.

"It was just a kick in the stomach," Rancic said recalling the day she learned of her cancer. "That was the hardest day ... (the emotions are) what you expect but so much more. It was incredible instant sobbing, and it was like the world just crashed down around me. I couldn't believe it, 36 years old, no family history."

Rancic has also appeared in the reality show "Giuliana and Bill" since 2010 with her husband Bill.

Rancic said she never expected there could be something wrong and sent a message to women:

"A lot of us think we're invincible ... but we have to start putting ourselves on the to-do list," she said.
