The Breast Blog: Kylie Minogue

Minogue's cancer surgery a success

MELBOURNE, Australia -- Doctors have successfully removed a cancerous lump from Australian pop star Kylie Minogue's breast and are confident they caught the disease early enough to prevent it spreading, a surgeon announced Saturday.

Dr. Jenny Senior said the Australian pop star underwent surgery Friday afternoon at the St. Frances Xavier Cabrini Hospital in her home town of Melbourne.

The operation removed "an early breast cancer," Senior said, describing the procedure as "best practice around the world for a girl with an early breast cancer."
