Big Ang : VH1 'Mob Wives' Star Throat Tumor Is Cancerous

Big Ang is keeping a positive attitude, despite the news that the “lemon-sized tumor” in her throat is cancerous.

On Friday TMZ quoted Ang’s sister, Janine Detore, saying that doctors found a “lemon-sized” tumor on the TV celebrity’s voicebox and that it is cancerous.

She also told TMZ that her sister has smoked for 42 years and that doctors have told her to quit stat.

Ang herself made no mention of cancer in her message to fans.

“Big Ang isn’t going anywhere!” she wrote. “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.”
