Big Ang Throat Tumor: Mob Wives Star To Have Surgery On Massive Growth (PICS)
UPDATE: Big Ang has confirmed her medical scare, and says she has been released from the hospital. The star posted on Instagram and Facebook: “Hi my babies! I am finally able to take a moment to speak to you all. First off, my apologies that you had to find out about my condition from every other outlet but me. This was never my intent, but unfortunately it got out there. Secondly, I want to clarify the rumors that I am hospitalized. I went in for a test due to the nodule in my throat. I had a nerve wracking couple of days, as would anyone when you hear testing etc… However, I am home peaceful and relaxing.”
She continued, “This coming week I will be taking proper precautions and having it removed. I do want to say that you have all been on my mind every step of the way and I am so thankful to each and every one of you for the love, support, prayers and most of all positive wishes. Big Ang isn’t going anywhere! This is a minor setback, but I promise you this… I already have some BIG things in the world and will be returning to your TVs very soon.”
“Always look after yourselves and don’t neglect your health. I’m fortunate and blessed to have discovered something very early, and handle it in a positive manner,” Big Ang went on, before adding, “I thank you and I love you all from the bottom of my heart. Stay posted in the coming days, I will give you all updates. xoxoxox.”
Big Ang has reportedly been hospitalized due to a massive throat tumor.
The notoriously raspy-voiced “Mob Wives” star has been struggling with neck pain in recent weeks. Doctors have since discovered she has a lemon-sized tumor in her throat. Ang was hospitalized in Staten Island earlier this week, and is reportedly awaiting surgery to have the growth removed. According to TMZ, it is not yet known if the tumor is cancerous.
Ang participated in Monday’s mock funeral for the “death of fake reality TV” with a shirt covering her neck, but it’s not clear if that was intentional (see photo above). That area was exposed, however, in a photo she posted to Instagram on Sunday, and during the days prior (see below). And the reality star has made no mention of her health crisis on social media.
In a 2012 interview with “Sway in the Morning,” Big Ang said she thought her deep voice was due to smoking More Red cigarettes for “35 years,” and speculated that it burned her throat. Whatever the cause, Gossip Cop hopes Ang’s issue is resolved safely and quickly. Check out the photos and video below. We will have updates.
