Jennifer Grey: "Dancing With The Stars" Doc Checkup Found Cancer

| by Crazy Days and Nights

Jennifer Grey decided that before she took on something as arduous as Dancing With The Stars, she should have an old injury from a car wreck looked at. So, she went to the doctor and he said that if she is in an accident, that she could possibly be paralyzed. I know, I know. That sounds serious enough as it is, but at the same appointment the doctor pointed out a lump on Jennifer Grey's neck.

She told Zap2It.com, "The doctor asked, 'What's that lump in your neck?' I said, 'Oh, it's just a benign nodule that I've been watching for four years.' I didn't want to have surgery for it, but he said, 'That has to go.' They took out half of it, and it turned out to be cancerous. Then they took the second half out on Christmas Eve."

I am glad she is ok, and it sounds like it could have been something that turned out a whole lot worse. I also can't believe she decided to have surgery to remove a cancerous lump on Christmas Eve.
