John Mayer

Undergoes Throat Surgery

10/23/2011 8:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John Mayer underwent surgery this week to remove a granuloma from just above his vocal cord, the singer announced on his blog.

Mayer said the surgery was necessary after his attempts to rest his voice didn't help.

Mayer announced the ailment last month and pushed back the release of his new album until 2012.

"in medical practice, doctors occasionally use the term "granuloma" loosely to mean "a small nodule". Since a small nodule can represent anything from a harmless nevus to a malignant tumor, this usage of the term is not very specific. Similarly, radiologists often use the term granuloma when they see a calcified nodule on on X-ray or CT scan of the chest. They make this assumption since granulomas often contain calcium, although the cells that form a granuloma are too tiny to be seen by a radiologist. The most accurate use of the term "granuloma" requires a pathologist to examine surgically removed and specially colored (stained) tissue under a microscope"
( so until the tissue is examined according to this he dosent know what it is yet?) or maybe because of its location they did a bio prior)

Say what you want about the guy, but no one can say he sucks at playing guitar. If you do, you know nothing about the instrument.

There's a problem here    

Liked his music. Liked his voice. Thought he was messed up personally, but could never watch him sing because he always had a look on his face like he was having an org.asm. Not pretty, you know what I mean?
