Toni Braxton Comments On Breast Cancer Rumor
Braxton: “I was very fortunate that they did not find anything and I am in great health.”
The singer recently told Sister2Sister magazine in the September issue:
Toni: I had fibroid tumors â€” I had endometriosis [a health issue where tissue that looks and acts like the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus]. I had that surgery, then I had two C-sections on top of that, so it was just a mess. Iâ€™m very fortunate I didnâ€™t have to get a hysterectomy.
For the full story you’ll have to pick up a copy of the magazine.
