Sheryl Crow is Suffering from a Brain Tumour

50-year-old Sheryl Crow revealed that she has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. But luckily this time her tumor is a benign tumor, so there is nothing to be alarmed about. Breast Cancer survivor Sheryl Crow, said that she was very much worried about the presence of a tumor in her brain but when her doctors affirmed that it’s a benign one, she was relieved. Her rep said, "Half of us are walking around with [meningioma], but you don't really know unless you happen to have an MRI," the singer's rep told E! News. "[Crow] has no symptoms and everything is fine. It was a random mention during a [recent] interview. It was not meant to alarm anyone. She is doing great and is healthy and happy."

According to Sheryl Crow’s doctors these kind of benign tumors are present in several brains and are harmless. But Sheryl Crow, who found about the tumor in November, last year, was very worried of losing her memory, so she immediately went to get a MRI report.

, "I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor ... but it's benign, so I don't have to worry about it."

Crow also told reporters that she has a history of memory loss since 1990’s, when she forgot the lyrics of one of her songs during a live show. But back then she was normal and had not undergone cancer surgeries. But know she is more cautious of her health and anything that results in memory loss, frightens her. Doctors also expressed that Sheryl Crow, is doing the right thing by consulting them, for her health related issues. The diagnosis of any disease at initial stage always helps in eliminating its danger.

Sheryl’s rep also said that she successfully battled her breast cancer in 2006. Even during those hard times, she was stead fast and confident of her recovery. Now that the present brain tumor is free from danger, Sheryl has nothing to worry about.

The results of her MRI report showed that she has a meningioma, which according to doctors, is the most common type of brain tumor. And they also insisted that a common person does not see any symptoms from meningioma, during their life time and no necessary treatment is required for it. Most of the brain tumors are meningiomas.
