Mob Wives star Big Ang is handling the discovery of a tumor pretty well

Angela "Big Ang" Raiola has confirmed she is dealing with a pretty serious health situation.

Information is still circulating, but just a few hours ago, the star posted on her Facebook page to give us the lowdown on what is really going on with her.

It was reported that Raiola had been hospitalized and was undergoing emergency surgery. But not all of that seems to be the case.

The reality TV star posted that she was not currently in the hospital but that she was "home peaceful and relaxing" after a "nerve wracking couple of days" waiting for test results.

She said she went in to have some tests done because of a nodule in her throat. According to various other sources, a tumor the size of a lemon was found in the star's throat. It is not clear yet if the tumor is cancerous or not.

But Big Ang, a mother of two, told her fans she is in good spirits and that she's a fighter. She said, "Big Ang isn't going anywhere! This is a minor setback… 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."

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...
