American singer-songwriter John Mayer has revealed that he has undergone surgery to rectify a throat condition he has been suffering with.

The blues star has a granuloma just above his vocal cord. According to Voice Medicine, this is a "benign growth that results from irritation or trauma".

He revealed that the granuloma has now been removed and that he has been ordered by docs to completely rest his voice for a month.

Writing on his tumblr blog, he said: "It's been a very long process in waiting to see if time was an alternative to surgery, but even given two weeks' voice rest (along with many other approaches), there was no change for the better.

"I should be frustrated but I can’t seem to stop thinking about beautiful things… I never thought I’d be wishing I could do what I love again; I stay in at night, picking guitar parts off of records and dreaming of playing on the big stage. The only difference between now and when I was 18 is that now I have this beautiful, meaningful record waiting for me when I can sing it."

He added that in the meantime he was looking forward to travelling across the US.
