Howard Stern Show co-host Robin Quivers has scheduled a date to undergo surgery to remove the grapefruit-sized tumor pressing on her bladder.

HSS fans tuned in Monday morning in the hopes of learning more details about Quivers' condition.

“There’s not really any update," said Quivers. "I have a surgery date scheduled and I’m seeing the doctor today."

Quivers has yet to reveal whether the tumor is cancerous or benign or exactly what the surgery will entail, but did reveal she's not happy about the procedure:

“I still say it’s barbaric what they do in medicine.”

Quivers has been Howard Stern's on-air partner since 1981. When she revealed her medical troubles on air last week, Stern said he couldn't imagine ever doing the Show without her. Robin Quivers is 59-years-old and says she has a history of cancer in her family.
