The newly revealed Sheryl Crow brain tumor does not put the singer in any danger and she has no immediate plans for surgery, the pop singer revealed on Tuesday. The Sheryl Crow brain tumor was discovered when the “Soak Up the Sun” singer went in for an MRI because she was having trouble with her memory.
“I haven’t really talked about it,” Sheryl Crow said in an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor.”
The Sheryl Crow brain tumor is not an immediate threat to her health, however, and she has no plans for brain surgery at this time. “It’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit” Crow said. She did not reveal whether she was undergoing any other treatment for the tumor.
The 50-year-old singer became concerned about having memory problems and decided to go in for a check up and an MRI, which resulted in her diagnosis with the benign brain tumor.
Just a month ago, Sheryl Crow forgot part of the lyrics to her hit song “Soak Up the Sun” during a concert in Florida. She joked at the time to fans: “I’m 50, what can I say? My brain’s gone to s**t.”
Sheryl Crow previously battled breast cancer in 2006, finally overcoming the disease. Except for the benign brain tumor, Sheryl Crow is in great shape, having just completed her first half-marathon. The mother of two adopted boys, Wyatt Steven and Levi James, Crow is also currently working on her eigth studio album.
