The upcoming episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta will take on a more serious turn than previous weeks when it airs next Sunday, Feb. 10, in which Kenya Moore will visit a medical doctor to undergo a biopsy after several lumps were discovered in her breast.

While en route to the doctor's appointment, Moore admitted that the appointment is a top priority because she has been so busy that her "health has taken a back seat."
The former Miss USA then opened up about the reason she had to have the medical procedure.
"I had my annual mammogram done and I didn't get the best news," a visibly upset Moore said. "The doctor found not one but two lumps in my breast. Today I have to have a biopsy. I'm not really sure what to expect but finding out that I could possibly have cancer is definitely one of the hardest things I've ever had to face."
In a preview clip for the episode, Moore is dressed in a hospital gown with a thermometer in her mouth as her doctor explained the procedure to her. Moore's aunt Lori is with her to provide emotional support.
Last week's episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, which aired on Jan. 27, had a comical slant- Moore took her "frenemy" relationship with co-star Phaedra Parks to another level by mocking her at a party in front of their mutual friends.
Moore, 41, went to a launch party and charity event thrown by NeNe Leakes to celebrate the launch of her shoe line with ShoeDazzle.com. Moore arrived at the party wearing a revealing fishnet dress over a one-piece black bikini and a large white hat. The idea was to mock Parks who wore a similar ensemble during the cast members' group trip to Anguilla shown in an earlier episode. Moore revealed her plans to upstage and embarrass Parks as she and her friend were en route to Leakes' party.
Moore spoke in her regular voice and pretended to speak to Parks, saying, "Let me just show you how ridiculous you look!"
Moore - dressed in a thong bikini with butt pads attached to her rear and high-heel shoes - upset Leakes upon her arrival at the event. Leaked said about Moore, "This b**ch just lost it!"
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo Sundays at 8/7 p.m. Central.
