'Dog the Bounty Hunter' star Beth Chapman has emergency surgery after throat cancer returns
UPI News Service, 11/28/2018
Beth Chapman, the wife of Duane "Dog" Chapman, has undergone emergency surgery following the return of her throat cancer.
Beth's lawyer Andrew Brettler confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that the former "Dog the Bounty Hunter" and "Dog and Beth" star was hospitalized on Tuesday.
Beth was taken to Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after having difficulty breathing, TMZ reported citing sources.
A large mass in her throat was then discovered.
Beth, 51, was diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer in September 2017.
She later announced she was cancer-free during a two-hour special on A&E titled "Dog & Beth: Fight of Their Lives."
"I can confirm that Beth was hospitalized today and underwent surgery to remove a mass in her throat, which was determined to be a reoccurrence of the cancer. I understand that the situation is very serious," Brettler said in a statement.
"We are all concerned for her and the well-being of the Chapman family," he continued.
