Mob Wives star Angela "Big Ang" Raiola confirmed reports Thursday that she is dealing with a worrying medical diagnosis.

In a post on Facebook, the reality star wrote that she’d had a test for a nodule in her throat.

” I had a nerve wracking couple of days, as would anyone when you hear testing etc…” the reality star wrote.

But she also clarified incorrect reports that she was hospitalized. “I am home peaceful and relaxing,” she wrote, adding that “this coming week I will be taking proper precautions and having it removed.”

“Big Ang isn’t going anywhere!” she reassured fans. “This is a minor setback, but I promise you this… I already have some BIG things in the world and will be returning to your TVs very soon.”

“Always look after yourselves and don’t neglect your health,” she cautioned. “I’m fortunate and blessed to have discovered something very early, and handle it in a positive manner. I thank you and I love you all from the bottom of my heart.”
