Janet Jackson Has Surgery To Remove Potentially Cancerous Tumor
“God forbid that this should be cancer of the larynx,” Dr. Stuart Fischer told Radar. “That would abruptly end her ability to ever perform again.”
Cancer of the larynx requires immediate surgery C— and a patient often needs an electrolarynx, or artificial voice box, just to be able to speak, noted Dr. Fischer, who explains, “Singing would be impossible.”
Treatment for a cancerous growth in 49-year-old Jackson’s throat would be extremely aggressive and require intense after-care, according to Dr. Fischer.
“Surgery would be very complex, and followed by months of radiation treatment,” he said.
Prayers up for a cancer-free Janet Jackson and a full recovery after her surgery.
