Sheryl Crow Reveals She Has a Benign Brain Tumor YORK) -- Sheryl Crow, a breast cancer survivor, is dealing with another health issue, but this one doesn't appear to be as serious.  She tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "In November, I found out I have a brain tumor.  But it's benign, so I don't have to worry about it.  But it gives me a fit."

Crow is referring to the fact that she feels the tumor is affecting her memory -- in fact, her memory problems are what sent her to the doctor in the first place. "I worried about my memory so much that I went and got an MRI," she tells the paper. "And I found out I have a brain tumor. And I was, like, 'See? I knew there was something wrong.' "

A month ago, Crow made headlines when she forgot the words to her hit "Soak Up the Sun" while on stage in Florida.  She told the crowd then, "I'm 50, what can I say? My brain's gone to sh*t."

Brian tumor aside, Crow seems to be in fine health.  She recently ran a half-marathon and she's busy raising two young sons, doing a handful of shows each month and working on a new album.
