Janet Jackson Denies Having Cancerous Tumors On Vocal Chords
We recently reported that iconic singer Janet Jackson was battling major health issues before her upcoming tour. Reports even surfaced that cancerous tumors were found on her vocal chords according to RadarOnline.
Hey you guys… Happy Holidays to each and every one of you. I need you to know, I learned today, from my doctors that I must have surgery soon. It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring. Every date will be rescheduled. Please hold on to your tickets. They will be honored in a special way when the new schedule is announced. Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time. There will be no further comment. I love you all so much and am ever grateful for your understanding and your love. Gon' b alright.
“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.
The singer now says that the reports are untrue! Check out a message straight from Janet below:
