Patti Labelle Reveals Cancer Scare

Soul veteran PATTI LaBELLE is celebrating after a biopsy revealed she isn't suffering from breast cancer.

The 61-year-old singer was terrified she would be diagnosed with the disease, after a routine mammogram raised fears of possible tumours in her left breast.

LaBelle revealed her ordeal during DENISE RICH's Angel Ball cancer benefit on Monday evening (14NOV05).

She told the star-studded event, "I haven't told anyone about this. I haven't even told my son, ZURI. He's probably going to have a stroke.

"I went in for a mammogram, and they found some white spots in my left breast.

"My doctor said the spots looked suspicious.

"I have really big boobs, so they had to do it, like, 16 times under the lights.

"Thank Jesus! I'm cancer-free!"
