Icelandic singer Bjork says she has had successful surgery to remove a vocal cord polyp.

The eccentric 47-year-old singer said on her official website that she had been trying to tackle the problem with exercises and diets since doctors first discovered the polyp, a benign growth on either one or both of the vocal cords, several years ago.

Bjork said that she decided to undergo laser surgery and it has worked, though she had to stay quiet for three weeks.

She wrote: "Surgery rocks! ... It's been very satisfying to sing all them clear notes again."

The singer apologised for cancelling some shows earlier this year, and said that she looked forward to singing for her fans next year.
