‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ star Beth Chapman undergoes surgery for returning cancer

“Dog the Bounty Hunter” star Beth Chapman is, once again, battling cancer.

“I can confirm that unfortunately, her cancer has returned,” attorney Andrew Brettler said in an emailed statement to USA TODAY Wednesday. “The doctors say it’s serious and are evaluating her treatment options. We’re all hoping for the best.” 

Brettler also confirmed Chapman, 51, went into the hospital Tuesday where she endured an operation so a cancerous mass in her throat could be removed. 

This is not the first time Chapman has dealt with the illness. Duane “Dog” Chapman, who starred with his wife of more than 12 years on the reality series “Dog the Bounty Hunter” and “Dog and Beth: On the Hunt,” confirmed his wife’s 2017 stage 2 throat cancer diagnosis in a Facebook post. 

“Thank you for your healing prayers and love for Beth during this difficult time,” the reality star wrote at the time. 

As “Entertainment Tonight” points out, Chapman reflected on her previous health struggles in a New Year’s Day post earlier this year. 

“Prior to my surgery I had no lines no wrinkles a perfect neck if you will. It has been very hard to look at this in the mirror, it serves as a constant reminder of something I’d love to forget,” she said of her scarring. “However some life lessons you should never forget only learn from them and learn to embrace them so today I reveal my worst battle scar and know that things will get better in #2018”

She added “#secondchances #DogandBeth#battlescars”.
