Jax reveals her scary diagnosis.

Jax captured America's attention on season 14 of American Idol, thanks to her powerful pipes and amazing voice.

The FOX alum explained to NJ 101.5 that she hadn't been feeling too great back in April, when she was slated to do a show at New York's Webster Hall, saying:

"I was going through a lot, traveling a lot, living out of a suitcase. But I was waking up tired a lot, losing my voice and just kind of depressed and in a really dark place. My parents knew something was up because if wasn't normal."

The 20-year-old said in the spring, she felt a lump on her throat while grocery shopping with her parents. However, the New Jersey native didn't think much of it, admitting:

"But I'm like a bro when it comes to going to the the doctor, and I let it go."

But, the songstress' parents begged her to get it checked out, so the gorgeous gal went to urgent care. After the facility gave her an ultrasound and ran some tests, the musician was diagnosed with Hashimoto's, in which the immune system attacks the thyroid.

Sadly, that wasn't all. Doctors also found 18 tumors
