Sheryl Crow

I Have a Brain Tumor

breaking news

0605_sheryl-crow_gettySheryl Crow just announced she has a brain tumor -- but the singer insists ... there's nothing to worry about.

50-year-old Crow told the Las Vegas Review Journal, "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."

You'll recall -- Sheryl choked on stage last month in Florida, forgetting the lyrics to one of her most famous songs. She said, "I'm 50 what can I say! My brain has gone to s**t!"

It's unclear if the incident was related to her brain tumor.

The tumor is what's called a meningioma -- a growth that develops from the protective linings of the brain and spinal cord.

According to Sheryl's rep, it's a very common condition ... and the rock star is happy, healthy, and doing great. The rep didn't say if the singer plans to pursue surgery.

It's not Crow's first cancer scare either -- Crow successfully battled breast cancer back in 2006.

We got Sheryl out just last week at LAX and she looked great.

Hope this gets to you, several opinions, benign, slow growing, is what we want to hear. I have relationships with Henry Brem, at johns Hopkins, pushing contsent papers, in meeting with him. Her's the deal, no tumor is benign, it will seek a blood source , maybe sagiltal sinus, I had no symptom,. He is now focused on this, because we run away, when we hear benign. No one honks it's great to have there noggin opened, common in women. Don't be afraid, don't forget it is reasoning and inhibitions, so we can still be unreasonable and uninhibited, so glad I listened to him. Fellowdeer caught in the headlights, which is how you must feel right now. Leslie Briggs, D.C. / Easton, Md.
