Mob Wives star Big Ang has cancer. According to the Canada Journal, Big Ang is scheduled to have surgery next week to remove a lemon-sized tumor from her throat. The 51-year-old was experiencing throat pain last week, so she went to a doctor in Staten Island where she found out that she had a growth. After doctors tested her, Big Ang was told that the tumor is cancerous.
While it is unclear what grade the tumor is, or if the cancer has spread elsewhere in Big Ang’s body, it has been reported that doctors have a positive outlook for the future of the reality star’s life.
The Mob Wives star recently confirmed that she has cancer, and says that she caught the disease early. Those who are familiar with cancer know that early diagnosis can often save a person’s life. Big Ang wrote the following message on Facebook on Thursday evening.
“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. 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. 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.”
Many believe that the Mob Wives star has cancer due to her many years of smoking cigarettes. While this is certainly a cause of throat cancer, Big Ang hasn’t confirmed this (it’s possible that her doctors haven’t confirmed this with her either).
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, several Mob Wives fans have expressed their support for Big Ang through social media. Many have faith that she can and will pull through this, and that she will be back on television (as she expressed) very soon.
