Big Ang of VH1’s Mob Wives shared some extremely shocking and upsetting news on Thursday with her Instagram followers. Ang revealed that the doctors discovered a cancerous throat tumor that they plan on doing surgery on. Ang’s sister Janine revealed that due to the 42 years of smoking, the tumor is the size of a lemon on Ang’s throat and that the doctors urged her to quit immediately. In a long heart-felt message Ang wrote:

Hi my babies! I am finally able to take a moment to speak to you all. First off, my apologies that you had to find out about my condition from every other outlet but me. This was never my intent, but unfortunately it got out there. Secondly, I want to clarify the rumors that I am hospitalized. I went in for a test due to the nodule in my throat. I had a nerve wracking couple of days, as would anyone when you hear testing etc… However, I am home peaceful and relaxing. As you can see, I just now took this photo to show you how I look at this very moment. This coming week I will be taking proper precautions and having it removed. I do want to say that you have all been on my mind every step of the way and I am so thankful to each and every one of you for the love, support, prayers and most of all positive wishes. Big Ang isn’t going anywhere! This is a minor setback, but I promise you this… I already have some BIG things in the works and will be returning to your TVs very soon. I thank God that I have great support all around me. 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. Stay posted in the coming days, I will give you all updates. xoxoxox
