Adele has undergone throat surgery in the US tonight (November 7).

The singer underwent vocal cord microsurgery to stop recurrent bleeding from a benign polyp, according to a spokesman for Massachusetts General Hospital. The condition is usually the result of unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord, he added.

The hospital said Adele is expected to make a full recovery in the coming weeks, reports the Belfast Telegraph.

Her operation comes after the singer last month cancelled all her remaining live dates this year in order to have the surgery on her vocal cords. She called off 10 dates that she was due to perform in North America and six UK dates.

Her representatives recently strongly denied rumours that she has throat cancer.

Yesterday (November 6), producers of the new James Bond instalment Skyfall also denied that Adele is set to sing the theme song for the next movie.

Skyfall, Bond's 23rd outing, is due to hit cinema screens on October 26, 2012. Scroll down and click below to watch last week's press conference which saw lead actor Daniel Craig speak about the film and producers finally confirm the official title as Skyfall.
