Cancer Scare for 'The Nanny'

Aug 16, 2001 | 9:13am EDT

"The Nanny" star Fran Drescher has been diagnosed with uterine cancer, but also has been granted a good prognosis following surgery, the New York Post reports today. Drescher, 42, went under the knife Wednesday in Los Angeles, the actress' publicist tells the paper. And while that sounds dire, her camp insists it's "really lucky."

"They caught it early, and now she doesn't have to have radiation or chemotherapy," the rep tells the Post. "The doctors say there is no reason to think she will be anything but 100 percent healthy."

Drescher and her grating voice starred in the 1993-99 CBS sitcom, "The Nanny."
