A recent CAT scan detected a nodule in the right lobe of Stewart’s thyroid gland. Surgery proved the nodule was benign and the operation did not affect Stewart’s vocal chords.

The surgery hasn’t slowed Stewart down in the least. Just this past weekend he played in a charity soccer match, and after defeating Robbie Williams’ team, went on to reach the semi-finals.

Stewart’s is currently in the studio and his next album is due for release this Fall.
