In any case, this unfortunate news about Donny Osmond was shared on Facebook.
Normally, the vocal cords are pearly white without any bump on it. Watch a video of how this exam is performed.
However, with aggressive voice use, the vocal cords can become inflamed and potentially lead to bump formation like a hemorrhagic polyp. With a bump on the vocal cord, the voice can become raspy and irregular.
Typically in this scenario, the voice is better in the morning and worse by the end of day with voice use.
For Donny Osmond, it seems that he underwent a procedure called micro-direct laryngoscopy with excision of the hemorrhagic polyp given the strict 3 weeks of voice rest he is now on after surgery.
