Jade Goody Undergoes Surgery On Tumour

by | 07 February 2009

Former Big Brother contestant Jade Goody has undergone emergency surgery after doctors discovered a tumour in her bowel, it has been reported.

Surgeons operated on the reality TV star at the Royal Marsden hospital in London on Friday to remove the golf-ball sized growth.

The operation came days after the 27-year-old discovered that the cervical cancer with which she was diagnosed in August had spread to her bowel, liver and groin.

Her spokesman Max Clifford said Goody, a mother-of-two, would continue to give interviews and appear on a reality show on Living TV, despite her illness

"It helps her to think about something else instead of am I going to live and how long am I going to live?" he was quoted by the Press Association as saying.

"Is she doing it for money? Yes she's doing it for the money because she has to look after her two boys.

"She is keeping herself busy which helps her and helps her spirits but it is totally, totally up to her. Living TV have said 'If you want us to stop we will' but she said 'that's fine'."

Goody was appearing on the Indian version of Big Brother when she first learnt of her diagnosis.
