A routine check up at the Ear, Nose & Throat specialist has revealed that Dutch singing sensation Caro Emerald has a polyp on one of her vocal cords. Caro will undergo surgery next week with a full recovery estimated to take 3-4 months. As a result all touring and promotion has been cancelled until May.
Caro’s management Grandmono explained: “Although Caro has not had any acute vocal problems or hoarseness we have been advised that surgery is inevitable and it is unwise for her to continue singing until the polyp is removed.”
Dr J.J. van Twisk of the Ikazia Hospital in Rotterdam added: “There is a large polyp on the right vocal cord. The polyp is too large to expect that it will disappear with conservative treatment (no surgery and voice rest and speech therapy) so the only option is surgery.”
‘Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’ was released in Holland in January 2010 and has now been number 1 in the Dutch album charts for a record breaking 30 weeks. Caro has received the EBBA Award, the Popprijs Award, the Edison Award and a nomination for an MTV EMA.
