(USA TODAY) -- Actress and model Angie Everhart, 43, is about to undergo surgery for thyroid cancer.

"Word has been trickling out about supermodel/actress Angie Everhart's health," her rep tells Extra. "She wants to set the record straight by letting everyone know that it is true that she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, however, the prognosis is very good."

Everhart, who was married briefly to Ashley Hamilton in the 1990s and was engaged to Sylvester Stallone in 1995 briefly and to Joe Pesci before they split in 2008, has graced several Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues and has appeared in films including Last Action Hero and Another 9½ Weeks. She is mom to son Kayden, born in 2009.

"She will undergo surgery tomorrow (Tuesday, May 14) and expects to be back to work and to mommy duties in a few weeks," the rep says. "The most important reason she is revealing this information is to encourage people to learn about cancer prevention, its signs and treatment immediately."

In addition, Angie "wants to thank everyone who has heard about it and expressed their support."
