Taylor Swift has revealed that while her mother Andrea has been battling breast cancer, she has been diagnosed with a brain tumour.

The pop star told Variety that doctors had found the tumour during chemotherapy treatments.

“And the symptoms of what a person goes through when they have a brain tumour is nothing like what we’ve ever been through with her cancer before,’‘ Swift said.

“So it’s just been a really hard time for us as a family.”

Swift, 30, first revealed her mother had breast cancer in 2015.

She paid tribute to her mother on her album ‘Lover’ last year with a song called ‘Soon You’ll Get Better” in which she opened up about how her family has been dealing with her diagnosis.

“And I hate to make this all about me/ But who am I supposed to talk to?/ What am I supposed to do?/ If there’s no you,” Swift sings.

“We as a family decided to put this on the album, and it’s something I’m so proud of, but it’s just really hard,” she said during a YouTube Live event last year.

“I can’t sing it. It’s hard to just emotionally deal with that song.”

Her mother’s cancer returned last year after initially being treated in 2015, Swift wrote in an essay for Elle magazine in March.
