Dolly Parton is refuting rumors that she has been diagnosed with stomach cancer.

“There is absolutely no truth at all that I have stomach cancer,” the country singer said in a statement Wednesday. “I love and appreciate everyone’s concern.”

Parton was recently treated for kidney stones and is in good health, she said. “I had them removed three weeks ago and I am doing just fine!”

Parton added that she has been back to work, filming on her NBC movie Coat of Many Colors and promoting her new DreamMore Resort at Dollywood.
