Jane Fonda has revealed that she's had a cancerous growth removed from her lip.
Stepping out for a panel on Monday afternoon in New York City to promote the new season of her show Grace and Frankie, the 80-year-old actress wore a large bandage across her mouth.
Fonda, who was joined by her co-star Lily Tomlin, revealed: 'I just want to explain the bandage. I just had a cancer taken from my lip. I thought it was going to heal in time before I came before you, but it’s fine. I just want to explain it. I don’t normally go around like this.'
The two-time Oscar winner later appeared on Howard Stern's radio show, where he asked if the condition was 'serious.'
The 64-year-old radio host said, 'When they take this stuff out they have to biopsy it, it's a whole thing.'
To which Fonda replied, 'Yeah, they did [biopsy it.] I’m going to be fine, thanks.'
This isn't the first time Fonda has had a cancer scare. In 2010, the mother-of-three underwent a lumpectomy after her doctor found a small cancerous tumour during a routine mammogram check.She also suffered from osteoarthritis and bulimia.
