SHERYL CROW has been diagnosed with a
benign brain tumour.
The Grammy-winning singer, 50, went public with her latest health scare
an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist Doug Elfman on Monday.
She told the reporter, "I was worried about my memory so much that
I went and got an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging scan). And I found out I have
a brain tumour. And I was, like, 'See? I knew there was something wrong'."
But Crow insists the meningioma is not cancerous: "I haven't really
talked about it... But it's benign, so I don't have to worry about it."
And her representative has assured fans the condition is a common one
which won't affect the singer's current U.S. tour.
She says, "Half of us are walking around with (meningioma) but you
don't really know unless you happen to have an MRI. (Crow) has no symptoms and
everything is fine. It was a random mention during the interview. It was not
meant to alarm anyone. She is doing great and is healthy and happy."
Crow battled breast cancer in 2006.
