In a recent statement, the Bravolebrity shared with Us Weekly:

"I noticed a slight raised lump on my back near my left shoulder blade about 2 months ago. At first I thought I had been bitten by something, or it was just back fat. A couple of weeks later, I noticed that it was still there & seemed to be growing. I went to the doctor and was told that it was lymphoma, a fatty tumor."

How awful. Understandably, upon learning she had a tumor, Miz Bailey began fearing for the worst. She continued:

"Lymphoma is cancer of the lymph nodes and lymphatic system. I Googled it immediately and was blown away by the photos of the worst cases in particular. I was scared because as soon as I heard the word ‘tumor,' I immediately thought cancer."

Despite her fear, Cynthia moved quickly to combat the tumor and made an appointment to have it removed. Although the RHOA star's surgery went "well," there were some complications. The 51-year-old explained:

"Surgery went well, however it went much longer than expected because the tumor was embedded very deeply in my back & partially under a muscle. It was also larger than expected. In the end, thankfully all the lymphoma was removed successfully and it is benign."

The seasoned model has since returned home and is grateful for the "well wishes, texts, and flowers" she has received. Awwwww.

Cynthia previously teased her health concerns on Instagram at the end of March. Though she didn't say what was wrong at the time, she did note that she "had a little health scare."

We're just glad the TV personality is on the mend. Feel better, girl!
