Lindsay Ell had some somber news on her Instagram this morning as she told fans that, while she doesn’t have cancer, she does have some pre-cancerous cells in her body.

Ell, who has been posting pictures with her mom in town for Canada all week, wrote this morning on Instagram, “I don’t have cancer, but the doctor found pre-cancerous cells growing in my body that need to be removed. Sometimes we think we’re fine. Sometimes we think we eat healthy and workout, and that means we should be fine. But never underestimate the power of a check up at the doctor. You never know, and if you catch something early enough, it could save your life. Going in for surgery today, gonna get this stuff out of my body.”

Ell just performed at CRS’ New faces show in Nashville. Next week, she heads over to Europe for some shows and then on to tour Australia.
