Sheryl Crow has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. In a recent interview with the Las Vegas Review Journal the singer says, “I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. I haven’t really talked about it. In November I found out I have a brain tumor.” Fortunately Sheryl may not have much to worry about. She adds, “but it’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it.”
A rep for the star also adds, ” She has no symptoms and everything is fine. It was a random mention during the interview. It was not meant to alarm anyone. The tumor 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.”
Although not the best news to receive we’re happy it’s not life threatening. It was just six years ago the singer overcame a breast cancer diagnosis. It’s not clear whether she will pursue surgery. We wish her well.
