Issa Pressman Reveals She Underwent Surgery to Remove Cysts From Vocal Cord

Singer-actress Issa Pressman explained the reason why she has been inactive online and offline lately. She revealed through a video posted on Instagram that she underwent surgery to remove a “couple of cysts” from her vocal cord.

“Ola, guys. I’m just posting this video to let everyone that if, in case, you see me sitting in the corner, not being sociable or just being quiet and not talking at all, that’s just because I am healing from an operation,” she said.

Issa explained that she grew cysts on her vocal cord and clarified that they had been removed by the time she uploaded the video. With that, she emphasized that she needs to rest her voice for three months to fully recover.
