Kate Walsh had Surgery to Remove Tumour from her brain

Scary moments for Kate Walsh 2 years ago.

Kate Walsh turned from TV doctor to real-life patient in 2015 when she and her medical team¬†discovered a tumour “the size of a small lemon” in her brain.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice” alumna opened up about her health scare during Monday’s “Today” show,¬†sharing that her tumour was benign and that she underwent surgery to have it removed.

The experience prompted her to do what matters to her, including spending more time with family and friends and working on projects she loves, traveling and being “of service.”
