Legendary singer and actress Olivia Newton-John has revealed that she's living with cancer for the third time.

Newton-John, who turns 70 in a few weeks, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 and a tumour was found in her shoulder five years ago.

Her publicist dismissed the rumours at the time, blaming scheduling conflicts for the change of plans, but in a new Australian TV interview, which aired on Sunday, Olivia admitted doctors had discovered a tumour at the base of her spine.

After receiving radiation treatments to shrink the tumor, Olivia now says she's "treating it naturally". In 2013, a minor auto accident led to the discovery of a lump in her right shoulder.

Sir Barry said: "I'm very, very sad to hear about it (the cancer returning) again, what we all thought she had defeated is still there".

"My husband [John Easterling] has always there, and he's always there to support me, and I believe I will win over it and that's my goal", Newton-John said. As a result, she turned to her husband's Amazon Herb Company as well as the oncology team at her Melbourne Cancer and Wellness Centre throughout 2012.

"In California, it's legal to grow a certain amount of plants for your own medicinal purposes", she said.

So he makes me tinctures.

It was an incredibly emotional time for the Xanadu singer, whose older sister Rona died from brain cancer months later.

"My dream is that it won't be long before everyone has access to this healing medicine", she added. "There are other people out there doing much, much worse than me".

"I live in a handsome place, have a wonderful husband, all these animals I adore, I have an incredible career - I have nothing really to complain about". I have nothing, really, to complain about, ' she told Australia's Sunday Night. "I have a wonderful husband, I have all the animals I adore, I have an incredible career". And, um, I'm a very privileged person, and I'm very aware of that.

Revealing she is continuing to fight her battle, she added: "I am one of millions in this journey".
