The announcement came on Tuesday, March 5, and making the revelation was an emotional moment for the “Married to Medicine” star.
Explaining to viewers that she wanted to announce it on-air “so there’s no assumptions being made and there’s no crazy things out on the Internet,” she said she has “some health issues that I really need to address.”
As for what pushed her to get to a doctor and see what was going on, Webb-Lunceford credited her co-host Rashan Ali with continuing to stay in her ear.
“I had watched my body change over a period of time and I ignored it,” she says. “And Rashan, you just stayed on me. You were like a little gnat. I was like ‘Get away!’ You stayed on me. And with that love that you gave me I want to thank you so much because you led me to going to the doctor, and I have now been diagnosed with fibroids.”
Continuing to fight tears, Webb-Lunceford explained doctors discovered seven fibroids alone on the ultrasound. However, they cautioned her “there may be tons more once they get deeper into the surgery.”
As a result of her finding the best procedure to undergo, the reality star sat out the remainder of the week on “Sister Circle.” She said she’ll remain absent for “a number of weeks.”
Since Miss Quad went public about her diagnosis, which most often affects Black women, fans have been coming out in droves to offer encouragement.
