Lee Ryan is set to have major surgery on his throat after doctors discovered a lump on his vocal cords which he feared might be cancer.

The Blue singer is being forced to have imminent surgery after a visit to a London specialist on Harley street on Friday, following months of problems.

The Breathe Easy singer, 32, has been warned he may ‘lose his voice permanently’ if he doesn’t have an operation in the next three weeks.

A source close to the former CBB star said: “His world has been turned upside down. It has been a depressing few days.

"A doctor put a tube down his throat with a camera and saw a huge white lump on his vocal cords. He was told it’s not cancer but an aggressive cyst that’s growing fast. The specialist said if he doesn’t act fast, Lee will lose his voice completely. Even when he goes ahead, there are no guarantees.”

The insider added: “It was a joke initially in the band as he’s been sounding like a heavy smoker. But they soon realised the gravity of the situation. He sings the high notes too so it’s even more noticeable.

"It’s not known what caused the cyst but stress is often a major factor and he has had more than his fair share of that over the past year and a half.”
