Bjork has been forced to cancel two shows after discovering she has a nodule in her throat.

The Icelandic singer, who is touring her eighth studio album 'Biophilia', had been in residence at the Buenos Aires Centro de Exposiciones in Argentina since April 6, but has been forced to shelve the final two shows of the run after the diagnosis.

The singer wrote on her official Facebook page of the diagnosis: "I'm sorry to say that I have a nodule on my vocal chords and therefore cannot complete the Buenos Aires gigs. It is a shame as I really love the city and would have loved to stay longer. I hope I can go back soon."

Bjork has not said if she will require surgery to remove the nodule, which is a growth caused by trauma to the vocal chords. Numerous singers have suffered from the condition, most recently Adele, who underwent surgery to correct the problem.

The singer is scheduled to play a number of high profile festivals shows this summer, with slots at Primavera, Open'er and Øya festivals among those booked.
