Hilary Swank hospitalized to remove something somewhere

Hilary Swank had to be hospitalized to remove a “benign growth” that was found on an undisclosed part of her body. It sounds like it was a minor procedure as she went to the doctor in pain and he found the growth and immediately recommended that it be removed:

Hilary Swank is recuperating after undergoing a minor medical procedure at the hospital, her manager tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The Oscar-winning actress, 34, was “experiencing some discomfort and went to see her doctor, who prescribed an immediate course of action that included a brief hospitalization to remove a small, benign growth,” manager Jason Weinberg says.

“Her condition has been resolved and there are no continuing health issues, with the exception of some short-term rest and recuperation,” he says.

No other details were provided.

They call it a “growth,” and it could be anything. The important thing is that she’s ok and will be fine. Health problems can come up suddenly and cause your whole outlook and lifestyle to change. At least two time Oscar winner Swank will be fine after this scare.

    “hospitalized to remove a “benign growth” that was found” where her vag should be.

    I always knew she had a penis.

  2. Kaiser says:

    My guess is some kind of benign something on her boob. Or some skin thing?

    She looks fantastic in magenta! I’m getting used to the blonde hair…now that I think about it, it does soften her features but she’s bordering on looking washed out. I like this honey colour but she needs to play up her eyes a little more.

  4. Orangejulius says:

    She looks gorgeous…but I wish she’d go back to dark hair.

  5. elisha says:

    Let’s hope it was to remove that awful hair.. from her head.

    to remove her horse teeth?

  7. anony says:

    You really need more feminine features to make that cut work. Just do not see anything attractive about her.

    Can’t be a ruptured ovarian cyst. They aren’t removed. They hurt like hell and all you can do is manage the pain while it heals. Sadly, I know this from experience (3x…sigh)

  9. brianne says:

    I think the short hair really suits her, the blonde really washes her out. If her hair was still brown though, that purple dress would have been a knockout!

    Actually Lauri I had an ovary rupture and they removed it. It wasnt a growth. I also had a tumor on my knee that was benign and removed. could be something like that.

  11. Caffie says:

    Am I the only one who thought, “She’s had a miscarriage… the ‘growth’ was the baby… the undisclosed place was her uterus…”…? :roll:

  12. Celebitchy says:

    I took the ovarian cyst rupturing part out. I shouldn’t speculate about her health problems.

  13. Lauri says:

    Really, CC? I didn’t know they did that. With my 3, they gave me pain meds and week off. I guess it depends on the circumstance, then. I stand corrected.

  14. LEnneke says:

    My question is: why does this woman feel the need to share this medical procedure with the press? She seems a bit hungry for attention of pity or something. If this manager hadn’t come with a statement, noone would have known about it. I don’t like this womoman. Not since she ratted on her estranged husband in that Vanity FAir interview just to get more attention.

    Those burger-shop antics with the Academy award did it for me; she’s a silly cow, and a bit of an unfortunate one in the looks-dept… Goofy, with a sex change…

  16. Jayde says:

    It was probably to remove the stick from her ass.

  17. vdantev says:

    A few more feet from her jawline would be my guess.

    She’s one of those gals that was fairly cute-curvy at 15-ish, and from then on its been a loong, downhill slope. Why is it when the guy supports the gal when he’s already been relatively successful [Chad-Hillary, Philippe-Witherspoon, Lachey-Simpson, Emelio-Demi, tnaf], but as SOON as the ambitious biatch’s own upward ricebowl gets established – she’s outta there and he’s dumped on his head like yesterday’s Paris Hilton prop pet? Yep, that’s what guys are to vampires like this: walking wallets with dicks attached – accessories to HER agenda/image as long as they behave & suit their purpose, but ultimately as disposable as frikkin Kleenex. Moral: don’t buy the cow when you can get the milk fer free, and before she gets IDEAS planted in her scheming, treacherous lil head embezzle, embezzle, embezzle (to the Grand Caymans or Costa Rica just as your local Demorat politicians do]. As my dear, sweet evil ex said: “do it to them before they do it to you,” lolol.
