TMZ is reporting that Abby Lee Miller is suffering from health issues that are believed to stem from cancer

Anytime someone is believed to be suffering from a serious illness, it's shocking. But, this news about Miller is even more surprising because the "Dance Moms" star was released from prison and transferred into a halftime house just last month, in order to complete her sentence for bankruptcy fraud.

TMZ claims: "A rep for Miller's doctor, Dr. Hooman Melamed, tells us ... her emergency back surgery Tuesday was to alleviate what he thought was an infection in her spine, but after doing some tests -- he now believes she is suffering from Burkitt Lymphoma ... a form of non-Hodgkins lymphoma." The site also revealed that its reporters last saw Miller leaving her halfway house and she clearly looked like she was in much pain. 

"We're told further testing is needed to confirm the cancer, but she should know for sure in the next day or two," TMZ adds. "Regardless, Miller's doc says she'll need another spinal surgery, but is resting comfortably after her first operation."
