8:13 am
brown joined her on the search. >> why did you decide to hire someone? >> i'm a first-time mom. the mum one reason i'm not back to work yet is because i'm nervous of who i'm going to leave him with. >> reporter: we're not showing you the faces. p.i. eddie goes undercover. he follows and video taps every move. >> what are some of the worst things you have seen in your practice? >> we see a lot of nanny distraction. where nanny is not paying attention to the children. we have seen nannies leave children in strollers outside a store. >> reporter: p.i.s are joining a rise in so called mommy spies. moms keeping tabs on care givers. like upper east side mamas. >> the mom who takes a picture and posts it, what motivates her to do it? >> she sees a child, sees something that's wrong, looks at her own child and says, if this was my nanny, i would want to know. >> reporter: what did p.i. eddie find?

8:16 am
found. she was suffering from a rare form of stage 3 ovarian cancer. >> when you're stripped down to absolutely nothing to no hair, to scars. it didn't matter if i had a career modeling after this. it just mattered if i survived. >> reporter: she started treatment immediately. underdoing a hysterectomy and three months of chemotherapy. losing 60 pounds through the process. modeling throughout treernlgts even when losing her hair. >> at some points, i didn't feel like myself. >> reporter: this mork, her cancer in remission. using her platform the inspire women to recognize their inner beauty and recognize you can beat cancer. >> it's important to trust your gut. when you have confidence, you can taken to world. >> joining us dr. jennifer ashton. i love how intently you watch these pieces. 27 years old. that sun usual in that age group
8:17 am
for ovarian cancer. >> very unusual. ovarian cancer is classically and commonly unfortunately often dismissed as being attributed to something else. often gas troe intestinal issues. in this case, allege iedly her wait. ovarian cysts are not concerning. but when we see features that we think are suspicious and we cannot biopsy the ovary. that means a trip to the operating room. remember the simpymptoms. pelvic pain or pressure. increase in urinary frequency. and bloating. >> be persistent. know your body. this young woman, she went back. she trusted her gut. when should we know to go back and just, you know, demand that second opinion? >> first, robin, i think the
8:18 am
responsibility has to be on the doctor. i have a rule, if a patient comes back to me twice, three times, with the same complaints. i start to question whether i've missed something. for a patient, getting a second set of eyes on it is not always necessary. but how old be considered shoul need a diagnosis. if symptoms persist. if recommended treatment is invasive. >> how do you have that conversation? so many people are intimidated by the doctor. what suggestions do you have in toepg line of communication? >> don't be intimidated. people fear the worst. that's human nature. most of the time, it's not the case. any doctor who has not seen a patient's intuition at work, in my opinion, has not been practicing medicine long enough. medicine is an art and a science. >> you're not offended if someone wants a second opinion? >> no. not at all. the good doctors will never be
8:19 am
offended. let's get to amy. >> now on to our series modern roman romance. a new study says men may like the idea of women being smarter than them. but in reality, they're less likely to want to date them. >> you said you were a stewardess. >> remember when miranda dumbed down to get a date? >> as lawyer, partner, i got zero. as a stewardess, i got to one for tomorrow night. >> reporter: those fears are not fiction. women with brains are at the top of the turnoff list. >> so men are intimidated by women who they feel outperform them. that it snow diminishes their masculinity. >> researchers looked at 105 undergrat what men. they looked the idea of a woman who displayed more bell jens than themselves, when it came to
