Hilary Swank is recovering after a hospital procedure to remove a small, benign growth, a representative for the Oscar-winning actress said Thursday.

"She was experiencing some discomfort and went to see her doctor, who prescribed an immediate course of action that included a brief hospitalization" to eliminate the growth, Swank's manager, Jason Weinberg, said in a statement.

"Her condition has been resolved and there are no continuing health issues, with the exception of some short-term rest and recuperation," Weinberg said.

He would not provide further details.

Swank, 34, won Oscars for her roles in "Boys Don't Cry" and "Million Dollar Baby."
