Camille Grammer Battles Endometrial Cancer
Hoping to defeat the early onset of Endometrial Cancer, Camille Grammer underwent radical surgery today (October 11), and is currently recovering.
Howard Bragman, Grammer's representative, said to PEOPLE that the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star, who has two children with her ex-husband, former "Frasier" star Kelsey Grammer, "Underwent a radical hysterectomy today. The surgery went well and she is expected to make a complete recovery following a significant recuperation period."
"[She] has been diligent about regular checkups and monitoring," said Bragman. "Which explains the early detection and rapid treatment."
"Ms. Grammer expresses gratitude to all the amazing health care professionals who have taken such loving and nurturing care of her. She urges all women to be aware of genetic factors relating to women's cancers and get regular checkups."
According to the National Cancer Institute, Endometrial Cancer is a "cancer that forms in the tissue lining the uterus. Most endometrial cancers are adenocarcinomas (cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids). In 2013, a total of 49,560 new cases and 8,190 deaths have been reported." It is the most common form of cancer in the female reproductive system.
