"Luckily, I don't have to undergo radiation or chemo," Bates said in a statement. "My family call me Kat because I always land on my feet and thankfully this is no exception... My doctors have assured me I'm going to be around for a long time. I'm looking forward to getting back to work doing what I love to do."

Bates was also diagnosed with ovarian cancer nine years ago.

She has a busy professional future ahead of her, beginning on September 23 Emmy Awards where the veteran star is actually nominated in two categories:

Outstanding actress in a drama (Harry's Law) and outstanding guest actress in a comedy (Two and a Half Men). We wish her a full recovery.
