Singer -actress Zsa Zsa Padilla is battling the big C.
Padilla has been diagnosed with stage one cancer in the kidneys and it is good that the cancer is detected early.
She is scheduled to undergo a laparoscopic surgery next week at the Cedar Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles but she is told that she will not need to undergo a chemotherapy.
Padilla’s surgeon is the same one who performed lithotripsy on Dolphy, her long-time partner, in the 1990s.
Meanwhile, Padilla is worried about her daughter Zia Quizon because both sides of the family have already cancer.
However, she said that her daughter is strong like her and Zia still feels numb because of her father’s death.
