Sheryl Crow suffering from brain tumour

June 6, 2012 - Washington

Sheryl Crow has revealed that she was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year - but has reassured fans that it is benign.

The singer-songwriter said that the tumor was discovered when she went to a hospital to be tested because she was experiencing memory loss.

"I haven't really talked about it," she said in an interview with Las Vegas Review-Journal.

"In November, I found out I have a brain tumor. But it's benign, so I don't have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit."

The 50-year-old crooner's representative, Christine Wolff, insists that it's nothing to be alarmed about, and downplayed it as a common type requiring no treatment, Fox News reported.

The tumor is called meningioma, and it's typically benign. This tumour develops from the protective linings of the brain and spinal cord.

Wolff asserted that Crow is doing great and is healthy and happy.

Prior to this, Crow has battled breast cancer back in year 2006. The nine times Grammy award winner is currently on a nationwide tour.
