Sheryl Crow Has a Brain Tumour
Sheryl Crow has confirmed that her doctors have detected a non-malignant tumour in her brain. In an interview with the Las Vegas Review Journal, the "Love Is Free" crooner revealed that she underwent an MRI scan last year, through which the abnormal growth was spotted.
"I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumour. And I was, like, 'See? I knew there was something wrong.' It's benign, so I don't have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit," Crow told the publication.
Later on, when her fans started to worry about her health, she posted a message on social networking website Facebook to calm them down.
"Hey everyone - please don't worry about my 'brain tumour', it's a non-cancerous growth. I know some folks can have problems with this kind of thing, but I want to assure everyone I'm ok. Really appreciate everyone's love and concern, I feel so blessed to have the support of all my fans, but I'm good - really!" she wrote.
Her media rep Christine Wolff then clarified that the intention behind her client's revelation wasn't to alarm the fans and media.
"The tumour is a meningioma. It's typically benign and develops from the protective linings of the brain and spinal cord. She is doing great and is healthy and happy," Wolff added.
Crow, who turned 50 in February, says that the tumour won't require a surgical procedure, although her medical team will keep a close eye on it in order to detect any foul play.
It should be noted that in 2006, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent "minimally invasive" surgery, which was followed by a round of radiation therapy. The combination of treatment had successfully driven the cancer out of her system.
