The Divine Diva Zsa Zsa Padilla has been diagnosed with stage one kidney cancer.
Just 40 days after the death of his partner Dolphy, Zsa Zsa Padilla revealed that she has been diagnosed with stage one cancer.
The 48-year-old singer told ABS-CBN’s News Channel ANC that a malignant tumor the size of a golf ball was found inside her kidney. She is now undergoing treatment at the Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California.
According to cancerhelp.com, stage 1 kidney cancer means the tumor is less than 7cm across and is completely inside the kidney meaning it has a big possibility that it has not spread yet to other organs.
In an interview by abs-cbnnews.com, Padilla is optimistic that she can win this fight as the cancer was detected early.
“This is the first stage. Once it’s remove, I’ll be cancer-free. I’m going to take care of myself and eat well,” she said.
The singer, who is starring in the musical-comedy “I Do Bidoo Bidoo,” is scheduled to undergo surgery on August 27 at Cedars Sinai.
