Kylie In 'High Spirits' After Lump Removed

Pop singer KYLIE MINOGUE is "feeling fine" after a cancerous lump was removed from her breast during surgery in a Melbourne, Australia, hospital on Friday (20MAY05).

The SPINNING AROUND hitmaker, 36, shocked her fans on Tuesday (17MAY05) when she announced she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and subsequently cancelled the Australian and Asian legs of her SHOWGIRL world tour.

With her parents RON and CAROL, singer sister DANNII, cameraman brother BRENDAN and French actor boyfriend OLIVIER MARTINEZ nearby, Minogue was operated on by top surgeon JENNY SENIOR at the city's St Frances Xavier Cabrini Hospital.

Dr Senior says, "I am very pleased to be able to confirm that the operation was successful. I feel confident that we caught the cancer in time and that she is now on the road to complete recovery.

"Kylie has been the perfect patient and has charmed all my staff. I just wish I could have met her under happier circumstances.

"Kylie is now resting after the operation and her spirits are high and she is feeling fine. She has her family and friends around her.

"Finally, Kylie has asked me to pass on her thanks once again to all who have expressed their love and concern for her. Your support has certainly helped her through a tough time."

Meanwhile Australia's Cancer Council charity has created a special Kylie Minogue Breast Cancer Fund and received AUS$8,000 ($6,000/GBP3,100) in donations in its first 24 hours.
