Former Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) housemate Karina Bautista opened up about a personal "revelation" on her latest YouTube upload. The 18-year-old budding actress shared that she had been dealing with fibrodenoma, a type of benign breast tumors, in August to September 2020. 

In the video, the PBB alum shared that she initially felt a lump on her breast while casually watching Netflix. After a check-up, the doctor said that there are actually two cysts and that she needs to get an ultrasound to make sure. The results eventually showed that there are three cysts and that she needed to have them immediately removed before they got worse.

Karina got emotional during the video after looking back at the experience. She had been worried about the expenses for the procedure as well as for the mandatory swab test for COVID-19 (whose prices are no joke). Additionally, she also felt dispirited by her sudden health condition because she just underwent a different operation when she was in 10th grade.

The multiple check-ups and the operation were done in between her taping commitments. Even after the procedure, Karina had to tend to work as well as school. "Paminsan, may pagka-groggy pa talaga ako pero 'di ko na lang pinapakita. Talagang pinipilit ko," she shares, pertaining to the livestreams she had to do post-surgery. "Choice ko rin naman na ituloy yung work ko."

Karina assures fans that she's getting better and recovering from the operation. "Gusto ko rin na kapag napanood niyo 'to ay fully healed na ako para hindi na talaga kayo mag-worry."
