LOS ANGELES —

Beth Chapman is recovering after having surgery to remove what doctors described as a “plum-sized” tumor from her neck.

The wife of Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman underwent a 12-hour procedure over the weekend in Los Angeles, according to US Weekly. Doctors cut the reality star’s neck from ear-to-ear to excise the cancerous growth, The Blast reported.

Earlier this month, Chapman revealed she had been diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer.

“As most of you know I’ve spent a lifetime facing tests and challenges I didn’t see coming and certainly never expected,” she wrote in a letter to friends. “I’ve been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years but nothing as serious as the one I heard from my doctors two weeks ago when they uttered those dreaded three words, ‘You have cancer.’”

She vowed to fight the disease “every step of the way” and looked to her husband of 11 years and her children for support.

“I am so very grateful to be surrounded by family and friends who have given me incredible support during this very challenging time,” she wrote.
