LeAnn Rimes Praised After Sharing She Had Surgery to Remove 'Precancerous Cells' in Cervix

The 'How Do I Live' singer reveals that she 'underwent a minor surgery' as she encourages her devotees to get their annual screenings to 'catch changes' early on.

AceShowbiz - LeAnn Rimes has been showered with praise over her post about health awareness. Making use of social media, the "How Do I Live" singer revealed that she underwent a surgery to remove precancerous cells in her cervix.

In a new Instagram post, which she uploaded on Saturday, January 13, the 41-year-old singer recalled, "Yesterday, i underwent a minor surgery and i wanted to share what i went in for." She continued, "Because i think it's an important reminder to get our annual screenings in order to catch changes that may be taking place within the body early on."

LeAnn explained, "Several months back, I had my annual pap smear, which came back abnormal. In fact, I've had abnormal paps since I was 17 and through regular pap smears and colposcopies, my doctors have been keeping an eye on any cellular changes that could be taking place. after my latest abnormal pap smear and colposcopy revealed that i had high grade cervical dysplasia."

"I consulted with my doctor and we jointly decided that a LEEP procedure would be in my best interest, in order to remove the high grade, abnormal, pre-cancerous cells," she went on to write. "Now, usually youre not under anaesthesia for this procedure, but i elected to be. I've had enough trauma in my life already, so i prefer to be out and comfortable. that, my friends, is advocating for your overall, mental wellness and comfort and i HIGHLY recommend it!"

LeAnn further encouraged her fans to get their annual check-up. "I think its important to share what we are going through with one another, and on another level, for me, as someone who has a platform to be able to raise awareness for issues such as psoriasis, mental health and now, women's wellness and the importance of annual screenings and early detection. so, ladies, please don't put off getting your annual pap. my men, too… make sure you get your annual physical, minus the pap smear," she penned.

LeAnn additionally noted, "Early stages of cervical cancer don't usually involve symptoms, so annual screenings and early detection can be lifesaving. and i believe, the more shares and conversations we have around women's wellness, the more we take the ewww factor out of talking about vaginas and put the power back in our hands, to be able to take the best care of our bodies that we can."

After sharing the post, LeAnn was praised by her devotees for sharing her story. In the comments section, one of them wrote, "Love you babe. Thank you for being such a leader and amazing woman." Similarly, another penned, "Well said, Annual screenings are so important. Thank you for sharing your story!"
