After undergoing emergency surgery on Tuesday, Beth Chapman shared the sad news with her fans that her cancer has returned.

Chapman, 51, who starred alongside her husband Dog on Dog the Bounty Hunter, had been cancer-free for almost a year before getting the terrible news.

The Chapman family's attorney, Andrew Brettler, revealed that Beth was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles to remove a life-threatening mass in her throat, and that doctors later confirmed the mass was cancerous.

"I understand that the situation is very serious," Brettler added. "We are all concerned for her and the well-being of her family."

Brettler also told USA Today that Beth's doctors are "evaluating her treatment options."

TMZ reported that Chapman was rushed to the hospital when she had difficulty breathing early Tuesday.

Her most recent health crisis seems to have set in very suddenly, because Beth and Dog were photographed enjoying dinner in West Hollywood on Monday night and smiled for the cameras.

Beth was treated for Stage 2 throat cancer in 2017, and underwent a 13-hour surgery to remove a tumor in her throat.

But after her cancer went into remission, Beth shared an upbeat message with fans on Instagram, saying that she knew "things will get better in 2018."

Let's hope she turns out to be right, and doctors can quickly treat her new condition.
