Chynna Phillips revealed that she will be having surgery to remove a 14-inch tumor from her leg.

“The one thing that I never imagined could happen to me did. I am so upset with myself for not seeing the writing on the wall,” Phillips captioned a video titled “My Worst Fear Came True 😪” uploaded to her YouTube channel on Monday, April 22. “This goes to show that it could actually happen to anybody! Join me on my California walk around the holy block as I process all that’s happened.”

While on her walk, Phillips shared that she needed to get surgery on her leg in the next few months.

“I have a tumor in my left leg. I’ve had it since I was a little girl. They don’t know if I was born with it or not. It’s totally benign, but it is large,” the singer, 56, said while she was taking a walk in her neighborhood. “I’m talking very, very large. It’s like 14 inches long and 4 inches wide.”

Phillips shared that while her surgery is “eight weeks away” she is nervous about the procedure because it requires anesthesia.

“I am absolutely petrified of anesthesia, and I don’t know, I just feel like it’s the closest thing to death going under,” she explained. “I mean, it actually is. It’s the closest thing to being dead, which is probably not the best way for me to be processing anesthesia but I can’t help it.”

The musician shared that this would not be the first time she received anesthesia. She recalled having it administered several other times including when she had her breast implants removed and four previous surgeries on her leg.

“This will be my fifth surgery on my leg,” she confessed. “Look I’m not complaining I’m just saying I’ve had lots of surgeries. I’m sick of it. I don’t like anesthesia and I’m just kind of going in kicking and screaming.”

Phillips shared that while she is anxious about the procedure, she should focus her energy by turning her “worries into prayers.”
