Like many women her age, Maura Tierney found herself on the receiving end of a breast cancer diagnosis, and thankfully she caught it early.
The “ER” actress told press, "I was so, so scared of going to the doctor. I felt something, and my boyfriend at the time made me go. He said, 'You've got to take care of this,' because I was afraid. That's the one thing I will say: Don't be afraid to go to the damn doctor. Just go!"
Earlier in the month we learned her show “Parenthood” was pushed back due to medical reasons, and now it’s being reported that Maura Tierney has found a tumor in her breast.
The Dr. Abby Lockhart actress on NBC's “ER” star tells Us magazine, “I have discovered a tumor in my breast which requires surgery. I will not know either my exact diagnosis or course of treatment until that surgery is performed.”
