Comedian Kathy Griffin said Monday that she remains hopeful about her health after sharing on social media that she has been diagnosed with stage-one lung cancer.

“I’ve got to tell you guys something. I have cancer. I’m about to go into surgery to have half of my left lung removed. Yes, I have lung cancer even though I’ve never smoked!” Griffin, 60, posted on Twitter.

Griffin revealed there is a good chance her condition will approve.

“The doctors are very optimistic as it is stage one and contained to my left lung,” she said.

“Hopefully no chemo or radiation after this, and I should have normal function with my breathing. I should be up and running around as usual in a month or less. It’s been a helluva 4 years, trying to get back to work, making you guys laugh, and entertaining you, but I’m gonna be just fine.”

Griffin went on to reveal that she believes her health could have been much worse if she didn’t receive the COVID-19 vaccination.

The comedian also advised her followers to attend regular medical checkups to keep a clean bill of health.

Griffin is expected to appear on ABC's “Nightline” on Tuesday to discuss her diagnosis and her painkiller addiction.

She has said that she was prescribed several drugs by a doctor, including painkillers for an elbow injury.

“I really fell in love with them,” she said. “Then, it was kind of the allure of, ‘Oh, I can regulate my energy levels or my moods. Or ... I fell on my elbow in my act or something, and I can be pain-free or something.’ And it got out of control very rapidly.”
