Many Adele fans are anxiously awaiting news that she'll reschedule her cancelled 2011 Tour Dates, and hopefully getting back into the recording studio.  It looks like she's taken the first step to preventing any permanent damage that would keep her from doing just that.  She recently underwent a successful microsurgery for a benign polyp on her vocal cords. Doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital released a statement saying:

"Adele underwent vocal cord microsurgery to stop recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage (bleeding) from a benign polyp. This condition is typically the result of unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord that can rupture. Based on the advice of her doctor and voice therapist in the United Kingdom, Adele came to Boston to consult and undergo corrective voice surgery. The doctor expects Adele to make a full recovery from her laser microsurgery. It's likely that it will take several months until Adele is back to full voice..."

Adele has had vocal cord problems for months, even forcing her to cancel her 2011 tour last month. Then she admitted she had a vocal hemorrhage, the result of vocal cords frequently colliding with one another.
