Reality Tv star Brandi Glanville is set to undergo surgery to remove a benign tumour in her breast.
The ex-wife of actor Eddie Cibrian reveals she has been feeling ill for some time and doctors recently discovered a growth in her chest, but luckily found it was non-cancerous.
She tells In Touch magazine, "I am having surgery this week and am relieved it's going to be over with. It's a blessing the tumour is non-cancerous.
"I'm anxious about the recovery but have great friends who will be playing nurse. I'm ready to get it over with and feel better."
Glanville will go under the knife on Wednesday (12Dec12).
News of her health scare comes after a stressful few weeks for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills regular - she has been engaged in a Twitter.com war with Cibrian's new wife, singer LeAnn Rimes, over the care of her two sons with the actor.
The two women have been at odds with one another since Rimes and Cibrian's affair was exposed in 2009, breaking up his marriage to Glanville.
