Molly-Mae Hague revealed the mole on her leg ‘was cancerous’ in an emotional YouTube video.
The Love Island star has shared updates after removing the mark on her left leg, and previously stated that the results from tests she had undergone were ‘not what she expected’.
Speaking to fans about her health struggles, the 21-year-old shared the moment a doctor informed her that the mole was ‘malignant’, while she was in Venice.
In a video posted for followers, she shared her upset at initially being told there was nothing wrong by doctors.
‘I had the mole removed, the removal was fine,’ she said. ‘I got the call today, and he’s told me it is a malignant melanoma, which is skin cancer basically, which is obviously petrifying, and shocking, and scary.
‘I don’t even know what to really think or say.
‘I had a feeling though and I cannot believe that I was told by other doctors that it was okay. I am so upset and angry. I briefly asked this doctor, when I was walking out of the doctors, to double check this, and I was walking out with skin cancer on my leg.
‘If I hadn’t have asked, I would have still had that mole on my leg now, and I’d be none the wiser, and it could be spreading through my body. You just never know.’
She continued: ‘The doctor said it’s really good that we caught it early.
‘[The doctor] just said that I’m going to have further surgery, which is like… I don’t even know what to say. I can’t even believe it.
‘I’ve already shed tears about it. I’ve already like cried down the phone to every and every single family member.
‘I’m just going to stay really strong because I know that my mum and my dad, they will just freak. If I’m freaking out, they’re going to freak out. As long as I’m okay, then they’ll be okay, so I’ve got to just stay strong.’
Molly-Mae was due to undergo further surgery on her leg this week, but in the most recent instalment of her vlog, she said that her surgeon had halted the operation.
Giving an update, she informed fans that the doctors were confused over whether the mole contained any cancerous cells, and had sent it off to be examined in America.
‘Basically, he doesn’t want to do the surgery anymore,’ the influencer explained. ‘Because somebody has said that they don’t think it is malignant, which is obviously brilliant news.
‘But also not so great news, because now I’m like, is it malignant, isn’t it malignant?
‘I have no idea what’s going on. I’ve been psyching myself up for this surgery for the last two weeks now, and now it’s like, “Oh, it’s not going ahead.” So I’m really, really confused.’
The star has been waiting patiently for an update from health experts on whether she will need more surgery in the future.
She ended the video by imploring other fans to get themselves checked out if they have anything they are worried about, adding: ‘I hope this has taught you that nobody is safe.
‘Don’t ever think it will be someone else’s story, because I feel like that’s what I did. You know when you see things on Instagram or on the news, and you think, “That’s someone else’s story, that could never happen to me”.
‘Guess what, it happened to me.’
