Kate Walsh Found Out About Her Brain Tumor & Had Surgery 3 Days Later (Video)

Kate Walsh leaves the Today show studios after speaking out about her benign brain tumor back in 2015.

“I was exhausted. But I’d just wrapped a show, Bad Judge, and I was starring in it and executive producing, so it wasn’t unheard of to be totally exhausted. So I thought I just really burned myself out,” Kate said on Monday (September 18) during her interview live in New York City.

Kate revealed that the tumor was about the size of a small lemon, and she had to advocate to get an MRI for the diagnosis.

“Everything happened so quickly. Three days later I was in surgery,” Kate said.

On why she waited until 2017 to reveal the diagnosis, Kate said, “I really wanted to focus on the recovery back in 2015. And I did. And it was pretty swift and amazing.” Kate has partnered with Cigna to raise awareness and recently starred in a fun “TV Doctors” commercial.

Kate Walsh Diagnosed with Brain Tumor Two Years Ago

Kate Walsh is revealing that over two years ago, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which thankfully was not cancerous and she’s been on the mend.

The 49-year-old actress was diagnosed with “a meningioma the size of a lemon” and had surgery to remove the tumor.

“My pilates instructor said ‘hey, your right side is dipping,’ and it didn’t feel like I was off, but I looked down and could see it. Then when I was driving, I started swerving into the right lane. The exhaustion got to the point where I could drink five cups of coffee and still not feel awake or clear. And then around April, I started having more cognitive difficulties. It felt like aphasia, but it wasn’t just not being able to find words; I would lose my train of thought, I wasn’t able to finish sentences, and that was when I got really alarmed,” Kate told Cosmopolitan of what was going on before her surgery. “I thought maybe it was menopausal symptoms, because there are a lot of the same markers, but I really pushed to see a neurologist, I just had an instinct. I had to really advocate, because they don’t hand out MRIs so easily, but I got an MRI and thank God I did, because it turned out I had a very sizable brain tumor in my left frontal lobe. And three days later I was in surgery having it removed.”

“They suspected that it was benign, but they wouldn’t know for sure until they got in there. It was over 5cm, like a small lemon in my head, causing quite a bit of damage: there was a lot of swelling, and I had starting getting shooting pains in my head,” Kate said. “As much as it was scary, I was sort of in robot mode once I found out. I was relieved that I could get in with a great doctor and one of the most amazing surgeons in the world, and have them take care of it. I had the MRI and three days later I was in surgery, and it was benign and they were able to get all of it.”

We’re so glad Kate is doing well!
