The 20-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson revealed the news in an Instagram Story.
“So long story short, I had surgery yesterday [Friday],” the model and singer said, adding, “I had an abscess that was almost the size of a golf ball.”
“That's one of the things that just grows and grows and grows until it pops. And if it pops, you can go septic and die,” she continued.
“But I didn't die and they operated immediately. They did say that it was something I should've gone under for surgery for, but I didn't, and I was awake for all of it and it was definitely the most pain I've ever been through in my entire life - considering I'm covered in tattoos. But I'm alive!”
Jackson also revealed that she chose not to go under anaesthesia for the operation.
The surgery was just one day before she took to the stage with her new band, The Soundflowers at the F**k Cancer’s fundraising event.
