In a follow-up conversation on TikTok, seen above, in which Evans was asked about how the tumors differ from cysts, she explained, “I have a cyst on my spine… in my head… and I have two small tumors on my vertebrae in my thoracic spine. At C3 in my neck I have another tumor– small tumor.”

She continued, “As of now I’m just using heating pads and laying down when I can.”

According to The Sun, Evans suffers from syringomyelia, which, according to Mayo Clinic, is “the development of a fluid-filled cyst (syrinx) within your spinal cord. Over time, the cyst can enlarge, damaging your spinal cord and causing pain, weakness and stiffness, among other symptoms.”

Evans Dances Into the New Year

After posting a series of TikToks discussing her health, Evans uploaded a video dancing, as seen above.

On Evans’ Instagram, fans commented on the decision to perform dance moves for social media amid her recent health diagnosis. One person wrote, “Back is healed. It’s a miracle.” Another added, “Glad you’re healed. It’s a miracle.”

Someone replied to the latter comment, “I know look at her moving,” while another showed support for the “Teen Mom” star and wrote, “People have good and bad days damn! Give her a break.”

Evans will not be joining the “Teen Mom” reunion special and addressed her absence on a recent Instagram story. She explained, “Yeah, about that…I already have a whole YouTube video explaining this. It’s from, like, a couple months back.”

She added, per The Sun, “Basically, I got called one day by my old producer. He asked me if I wanted to be a part of this Teen Mom reunion show thing. I said, ‘I’m up for it, you can let them know I’m up for it, but I just want my husband [David Eason] there as support…Maybe down the street, staying at a different hotel, just in case if s**t pops off I have somewhere to go and support.'”

Evans concluded, “So, yes, I was invited, but I guess then I was uninvited. And apparently all the girls are scared of me because they’re like, ‘Oh hell no, we don’t want Jenelle being here.'”
