Farrah Fawcett has been released from a Los Angeles hospital after being treated for internal bleeding not directly related to her cancer, People.com reported. The 62-year-old actress, who starred in the "Charlie's Angels" TV series, was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006.

She recently had a "minor procedure" in Germany that "led to a small amount of bleeding into a muscle in her abdominal wall," which created a hematoma, a sac of blood that caused pressure and pain, her Los Angeles cancer specialist, Dr. Lawrence Piro, said earlier this week.

Piro told People that Fawcett, who was discharged Thursday, was in good spirits and looking forward to celebrating Easter at home.

A phone message was left for Piro on Friday at his clinic.
