Cancer was the last diagnosis radio personality Robin Quivers expected when she walked into the hospital in May 2012.
"I was tired," the long-time co-host of Howard Stern's radio show told PEOPLE Friday at T.J. Martell Foundation's Women of Influence luncheon in New York. "That was the only real symptom."
Quivers first realized something was wrong while she was out of town for a friend's wedding. Instead of attending the wedding, Quivers ended up in the emergency room where doctors told her she had a mass in her pelvis.
"I got back to New York, and it was very hard to diagnose," she says. "They said I definitely needed surgery, then they finally determined it was some form of cancer but they didn't know what. In a very short period of time I had to make a lot of life-changing decisions."

Loyal listeners tune in to Howard Stern's radio show knowing that anything can happen, but on Monday they got a surprise of a different kind – Stern's longtime sidekick Robin Quivers reveals that she's been fighting cancer for the past year.
In a frank discussion, Quivers, 61, explained why she's been absent from the studio (and broadcasting from home) since mid-2012. She revealed that she'd undergone surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment for a grapefruit-size tumor discovered in her uterus.
Quivers got emotional as she remembered the talk she had with Stern after getting the diagnosis – when doctors talked about "prolonging" her life, rather than "saving" it.

She's always been quick with a sly remark and a laugh, and now, after totally transforming her body, Robin Quivers is quick on her feet once again.
Howard Stern's longtime radio co-host, 58, who says she could barely walk a couple of city blocks a few years ago, completed a remarkable three-year return to good health this weekend by running the New York City Marathon.
"My life totally changed, and now I have this amazing amount of energy," Quivers told PEOPLE at New York City's Dbar after the race. Having lost more than 80 pounds and switching to a vegan diet, she says, "Changing my body has given me the ability to do all these amazing things that I never in a million years imagined I could do."
