Sheryl Crow bravely won her fight against breast cancer in 2006, but the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter has revealed that she has struggled with another serious health issue. The 50-year-old “If It Makes You Happy” singer has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, though, thankfully, it’s benign. “I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI. And I found out I have a brain tumor,” she told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “And I was, like, ‘See? I knew there was something wrong.'”

“In November, I found out I have a brain tumor,” she adds. “But it’s benign, so I don’t have to worry about it. But it gives me a fit.”

“Half of us are walking around with [meningioma] but you don’t really know unless you happen to have an MRI,” Crow’s rep said in a statement to E! Online. “[Crow] has no symptoms and everything is fine. It was a random mention during the [Vegas] interview. It was not meant to alarm anyone. She is doing great and is healthy and happy.”

We’re happy to hear that she’s doing well. Plus, she’s got a full plate of projects coming up — Crow is currently working on a follow-up to 2010’s 100 Miles To Memphis, with a possible release date in October. She’s also collaborating with director Berry Levinson on a stage musical of his 1982 film Diner.
