Marsai Martin undergoes surgery to remove a large ovarian cyst

Marsai Martin gets candid about his recent health issues in order to help others.

The Blackish alum recently revealed on social media that she is recovering after having an ovarian cyst removed, looking back on her years-long journey to surgery.

“If you missed my long live story I had surgery for my large ovarian cyst which caused me constant pain for over 4 years,” Marsai wrote on Instagram Stories on December 10 alongside a black and white video of her in a hospital bed. “I really don’t remember any of this because of the anesthesia lol. But I will say I’m so grateful to have my family and educators by my side to support this process.”

The 18-year-old explained why she wanted to share her story with her followers.

“The only reason I’m sharing this is so I can hopefully raise awareness and share my experience with young women who may be going through the same thing or have difficult menstrual cycles,” Marsai continued. “You are never alone. Listen to your body. It always shows you signs. Health is wealth.”
