Janet Jackson has devastatingly learned that her upcoming surgery is much more serious than she could have expected.
According to reports, doctors found a growth on Janet’s vocal cords; they believe it’s a tumor that could quite well be cancerous if it isn’t treated immediately.
While it’s unclear when Janet plans to undergo her surgery, she has already canceled any forthcoming shows from her ‘Unbreakable’ world tour, having told fans on Instagram that she was in desperate need for surgery, but wouldn’t elaborate on the matter.
She revealed: “It breaks my heart to tell you that I am forced to postpone the Unbreakable Tour until the spring. Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time…There will be no further comment.”
“It’s a medical condition that has to be taken care of immediately,” a source explains, adding that a growth on Janet’s vocal cords could possibly mean that she won’t ever be able to sing again. A procedure like that is very risky, so to think that her voice will remain the same as before may have some uncertainty to it.
Doctors will need to see how big the supposed tumor has gotten, presumably unable to assure Janet she will still be able to continue singing effortlessly.
Being the trooper that she is, Miss Jackson (if ya nasty!) has not allowed her cancer scare stop her one bit. She is said to be so confident that her voice will be back in no time; so much that she’s already looking forward to getting back on the road and seeing her fans again.
An update from Janet Jackson’s team will be made in weeks to come to announce whether the tour will go ahead over the summer, or whether Janet needs to scrap the entire concert once and for all.
