Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague told fans she’d had a lump removed from her breast after a biopsy revealed it had grown in size
Molly-Mae Hague has revealed she’s had a lump removed from her breast, as she shared a photo from her hospital bed.
The Love Island star found the lump earlier this year, and after requesting a biopsy discovered it had grown in size.
Posting to social media today, Molly gave a smile of relief as she explained she’d undergone an operation to have it removed.
“I spoke about a lump I found in my boob on a recent vlog of mine. Well I had it removed today,” she told her followers.
The influencer then urged her followers to ‘check their bodes.’
She followed up her post with a shot of bandaged up hand as she revealed further treatment.
“Also had a lump removed from my finger that I’ve spoken about a few times too,” she revealed.
“Also having a cannula put in my hand has always been without a doubt my BIGGEST fear… so that in itself is a HUGE achievement for me,” Molly-Mae added.
In August Molly-Mae spoke about finding the lump in her breast.
She said she had been reassured that the lump was not harmful but became concerned after noticing it had grown in size.
“I basically noticed a little lump in my boob, went to get it checked and it was completely fine, completely benign.
“It’s a little thing called a fibroadenoma and it’s a normal thing to get at this age, small lumps can happen all the time it doesn’t mean they’re sinister,” she said.
“I went back today to get it checked and it had grown a little bit, again, it doesn’t mean it’s sinister, it doesn’t mean it’s dramatic, so the doctor recommended that we did a biopsy.
“It was not very nice actually considering I’m afraid of needles, but I thought there’s not really a way around this. I promise it’s nothing serious, I don’t want it to be a massive thing. I think it’s important that I share this with you guys.
“It’s an important subject and we should all be checking our boobs and checking for lumps so we can do things like this.”
It came months after the Love Island star was told a mole she’d had removed from her leg was a malignant melanoma, which is a type of skin cancer.
Molly-Mae was given the upsetting news while she was holidaying in Italy, after previously being told my two dermatologists she had nothing to worry about.
