Nicole Kidman has spoken out to quash rumours that she has developed breast cancer. The Cold Mountain star decided to make a statement after her health records were acquired, without permission, by tabloid journalists.

"Unfortunately, due to an invasion of my medical privacy, I've received a number of calls from the press asking about a visit to the hospital in Los Angeles in January," revealed the actress. "I went in for a routine check-up and the doctors discovered an area that they thought needed further testing. The results of those tests were negative and I was given an all-clear."

"Needless to say, my family and I are enormously relieved and thankful," she continued. "As always, I am committed to raising funds and awareness for women's health issues, and I'd like to emphasise the importance for all women to have regular mammograms and check-ups."

Nicole's comments come just a few weeks before she is to be honoured by the Women's Cancer Research Fund for her charity work. The 36-year-old is also board chair of the Women's Health Fund at UCLA.
