Olivia Newton-John revealed that she has been diagnosed with cancer for the third time in three decades.

Speaking to the Australian show "Sunday Night", the "Grease" star said the tumor is at the base of her spine.

Newton-John says she was told a year ago she had cancer at the base of her spine, and she's been treating it since by completely cutting sugar out of her diet, as well as with natural remedies and "modern" meds, including cannabis oil as a pain reliever, per the Independent.

She underwent a partial mastectomy and six months of treatment, including herbal formulas, meditation and focus on her diet and fitness, before getting the all clear.

Newton-John was one of the most successful vocalists of the 1970s, racking up country-pop and soft rock hits like "I Honestly Love You" and "Let Me Be There".

Newton-John was diagnosed for a second time in 2013, a new breast cancer which had spread to her shoulder, forcing her to postpone a tour of the U.S. and Canada.
