Production on NBC's new show "Parenthood" has been delayed, as star Maura Tierney faces a medical scare.

"I have discovered a tumor in my breast, which requires surgery," the actress said in a statement. "I will not know either my exact diagnosis or course of treatment until that surgery is performed."

"My doctors have all assured me this is a very treatable condition," her statement continued. "I'm very optimistic as to the outcome and want to thank everyone who has sent positive thoughts and support. I look forward to going back to work soon."

No other details on her condition were given.

Maura's new show was set to premiere on the fall schedule but, since production has been postponed for eight weeks, "Parenthood" will begin midseason.

Let's send Maura our good wishes and thoughts.
