If you were in doubt about getting a checkup with your doctor, now is the time to do it. Lindsay Ell is encouraging fans to get examined after finding pre-cancerous cells growing in her body.

“I don’t have cancer, but the doctor found pre-cancerous cells growing in my body that need to be removed,” she posted on Instagram.

The singer/songwriter is incredibly healthy, often posting photos and videos from her hardcore workouts.

“Sometimes we think we’re fine,” she continued. “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.”

While Ell recovers from her surgery, she has much to look forward to. Her collaboration with Brantley Gilbert, “What Happens In A Small Town,” continues to climb the radio charts. She also nabbed a New Female Artist of the Year nomination for the upcoming 2019 ACM Awards.
