Singer reveals that the growth is 'benign', so she 'doesn't have to worry about it'

Sheryl Crow has revealed that she was diagnosed with a brain tumour in November of last year.

The singer, who successfully recovered from breast cancer in 2006, told the Las Vegas Review Journal that she went to see a doctor after she found she was forgetting lyrics onstage and was suffering from fits.

She told the paper when asked about her health: “I haven’t really talked about it. In November, I found out I have a brain tumour. But it’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit.”

She continued: “I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). And I found out I have a brain tumour. And I was like, ‘See? I knew there was something wrong’.”

Crow has sold over 50 million albums during her career, which has seen her release a total of seven studio albums. She released her latest LP ‘100 Miles From Memphis’ in 2010 and is currently working on songs for a musical adaptation of the 1980s classic film Diner.
