When Janet Jackson postponed her Unbreakable tour for the second time on Christmas Eve, she assured fans she was set to undergo a "minor" surgery, but things are looking more serious.

A source close to Jackson tells Radar Online, "Doctors found a growth on Janet's vocal cords that could be serious. It's a medical condition that has to be taken care of immediately. Janet said she knows that with prayers and her will, she'll be back out on the road in the spring or early summer.”

Janet herself stoked fears by issuing a very short statement that said, "Please pray for me, my family and our entire company during this difficult time… There will be no further comment."
