On May 13th, American Nicole Gibbs had announced on her Twitter account that she would have to step off the tour during the rest of the clay season due to the detection of cancer on the roof of her mouth. On May 30th, the World No.

115 informed her fans through the same platform, “Good news: Surgery successfully removed cancer! Margins were clear and I am currently cancer free!! Weird news: I’ve received a re-diagnosis. We now believe I had Sclerosing Microcystic Adenocarcinoma (not mucoepidermoid carcinoma as we thought).

Fortunately, the new terminology has little bearing on the outcome. We still expect that the cancer will be permanently eradicated after this surgery. And, if it were to recur, it would still likely only recur locally. Fun fact: there are only a handful of known cases of this cancer, and I’m the first documented case to occur in the roof of the mouth!
