The Masked Singer Season 4 winner LeAnn Rimes recently took to Instagram to share that she had undergone surgery to remove precancerous cells following a pap smear that came back abnormal.


LeAnn Rimes Reveals She Had Precancerous Cells Removed

Rimes wrote on Instagram that January is “usually a challenging month for me,” but this year it has been “joyful and easeful.” However, the singer did share that she recently underwent “a minor surgery.”

She revealed that last year, her annual pap smear came back abnormal, which has apparently happened since she was 17 years old. This time, she was found to have “high grade cervical dysplasia,” and she decided with her doctor to undergo a LEEP procedure to remove precancerous cells.

Rimes encouraged women to get their annual pap smear, and for men to get annual physicals. She emphasized that “early stages of cervical cancer don’t usually involve symptoms, so annual screenings and early detection can be lifesaving.”


The singer wrote that she hopes a more open dialogue about these issues can “take the ewww factor out of talking about vaginas and put the power back in our hands.”

Rimes Has Been Open About Her Health in the Past

As Rimes wrote in her recent Instagram post, this isn’t the first time she’s been candid about her health with fans. That includes talking about her journey with psoriasis, as well as her mental health struggles.


In 2020, Rimes posed nude to show off her psoriasis flare-ups. As she told Glamour, “I hope anyone who also kept themselves small has the courage to step outside of that cage. When we allow ourselves not to be held in, our lives come back to us.”

Then in 2022, Rimes announced that she had entered a 30-day in-patient facility for anxiety and stress. At the time, her rep shared that she was there “to learn and develop coping mechanisms.”
