Rosie O'Donnell: New Breast Cancer Scare

Rosie O'Donnell fears she might be facing a battle with cancer, the comedienne revealed on her blog Monday. She tells friends and fans in her update that doctors found two lumps in her breasts last Wednesday and she's currently getting both biopsied.

O'Donnell spoke to Extra TV and confessed she's scared she might have the same disease that killed her mom, the Toronto Sun reports. The TV personality's mother died of breast cancer at age 39, four days before O'Donnell's 11th birthday.

In her blog Monday, O'Donnell said the doctors told her it's "probably nothing." She also said that the second biopsy will be done Monday. Results are due later this week.

This isn't O'Donnell's first cancer scare: the actress revealed in her blog that she had a lump removed when she was 30.
