Mark Wright confirms he is cancer-free after having 12cm tumour removed from underarm following ‘terribly worrying time’

Mark Wright has revealed he has been given the all-clear after having a tumour removed from his armpit.

The former The Only Way Is Essex (Towie) star happily announced that he is ‘cancer free’ after a procedure to have the 12cm tumour removed was successful.

In a video to fans, Mark said he felt ‘so, so lucky’ to have ‘got the all clear’ but admitted the health scare has been a ‘terribly worrying time’.

Mark, 34, said: ‘I got the news the other day that it is all clear, it’s cancer free.’

He said his focus now was to ‘move on’ past the health scare, adding he had ‘not been able to train for two weeks’ since undergoing the surgery.

‘This is the first longish walk I have been on since the operation, so the first bit of exercise I have been able to do and honestly just already my head is clear,’ he told fans on Instagram.

‘I’ve had the worry and the anxiety of what this could have been and from staying in and recovering leaving me feeling a little bit low and not very motivated.’

The reality star had shared updates on his medical journey with fans, including a series of photographs of him in hospital, showing the bulge of the tumour as he stretched in the mirror, and the tumour after it had been removed by doctors.

He had seen multiple doctors, including a breast consultant and sarcoma specialist, and had undergone an MRI scan to decide the best course of action.

Mark, who is married to actress Michelle Keegan, said the tumour had been sent off for further testing, before it was eventually confirmed to be cancer-free.

Admitting he has been eating ‘terribly’ recently as he has ‘felt a little bit low,’ the star said he was looking forward to re-launching his brand Train Wright and Eat Right.

The newly named Live Wright – which began as a series of live workouts on social media during the first lockdown – will begin again in early 2022.

‘January 1 I will be recovered from this fully,’ Mark promised.

‘I’m still a little bit sore but I will be back in the game.’

Mark, an original cast member of Towie, previously spoke about his tumour and surgery to encourage others to get checked.

He captioned the post: ‘I had a bit of a health scare recently which I spoke about the other week, thankfully I’ve had the all-clear now which is amazing and I feel so so lucky.

‘I’m not gonna lie though it really gave me and my family a scare.’

The star also recently quit his Heart Radio evening show, after everything that happened made him ‘think about life slightly differently’.

He had been hosting his own show from 7pm to 10pm, Mondays to Thursdays, since March 2020, but will not solely be doing a Saturday show between 4pm and 7pm.

Mark added that he made the decision in order to ‘spend more time with what’s most important…. My family.’

Mark has been married to Michelle since 2015, with the pair recently moving into their dream home in Essex and sharing the process with fans.
