Janet Jackson Undergoing Tests For Throat Cancer
On Christmas Eve, Janet Jackson announced she was forced to postpone the remaining dates of her “Unbreakable” tour to undergo surgery.
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.
She also asked for prayers:
Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time. There will be no further comment.
Yahoo News is reporting the music icon is undergoing tests for throat cancer after doctors discovered a tumor on her vocal chords.
A source revealed: “Doctors found a growth on Janet’s vocal chords that could be serious
“It’s a medical condition that has to be taken care of immediately.”
In spite of the very serious health scare, Janet is said to be optimistic about hitting the road later on in the year, with the insider adding to RadarOnline: “Janet said she knows that with prayers and her will, she’ll be back out on the road in the spring or early summer.”
Janet previously postponed shows in October in order to rest her voice, and doctors have now sadly warned that if she is battling cancer then she might be left unable to sing.
Speaking to the site, Dr. Stuart Fischer explained: “God forbid that this should be cancer of the larynx. That would abruptly end her ability to ever perform again. Singing would be impossible.
“Surgery would be very complex, and followed by months of radiation treatment.”
Many singer develop benign polyps and nodules on their vocal chords. I certainly hope this isn’t being blown out of proportion because of a statement from a “source.”
Janet is and always has been a very private person.
Either way, please send up a prayer for Janet Jackson for a speedy recovery.
