ADELE will reportedly make a full recovery after undergoing vocal cord microsurgery. REUTERS reports, "the GRAMMY-winning singer, who was forced by throat problems to cancel tour dates through the end of the year, had surgery in BOSTON to treat a benign polyp on her vocal cords which was causing recurrent bleeding, MASSACHUSETTS GENERAL HOSPITAL said in a statement."
The condition "is typically the result of unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord that can rupture," the hospital statement continued. Doctors expect ADELE "to make a full recovery from her laser microsurgery."
"We would like to reiterate that ADELE is to undergo surgery for a hemorrhaged vocal cord. All reports regarding any other condition are 100% false," her spokesman said in a statement.
