Molly-Mae Shares Important Health Message After Cancer Scare

Molly-Mae Hague has shared a tearful message with fans as she opened up about a skin cancer scare she had last year. Taking to her Instagram stories, Molly-Mae begged her fans to get their moles or any other changes to their bodies checked out by doctors to make sure there's nothing wrong.

This weekend, Love Island 2019 star Molly-Mae Hague took to her Instagram stories to urge her fans to always make sure they get any changes to their bodies checked out by a doctor. She was inspired to share the message after watching a Stand Up To Cancer programme which featured the story of vlogger Emily Hayward, who sadly passed away from cancer in 2018 at the age of 24.

An emotional Molly-Mae said:

I am an emotional wreck. Don't mind me I was just watching a Stand Up To Cancer programme. A girl came on screen talking about her story with cancer who my mum used to tell me about. My mum used to watch her vlogs on YouTube. She was called Emily.

Emily Hayward became well-known online for her vlogs which shared her experience living with cancer. Emily was first diagnosed with malignant melanoma in 2011, when she was aged just 17, after finding a mole on her calf. The cancer later spread to her lymph nodes, liver and brain.

Molly-Mae also revealed that she had a cancer scare shortly after appearing on Love Island. She said: 'I actually found a mole on the back of my calf about a year or so ago and had it checked, obviously I'm so blessed that mine wasn't cancerous, but it just made me so upset that like ‘what does she do to deserve that? Who deserves that?' It is just the worst thing in the world.'

Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers in the UK and whilst most moles are harmless, the NHS website stresses that you should always get a mole checked out if it ‘changes shape or looks uneven’; ‘changes colour, gets darker or has more than 2 colours’; ‘starts itching, crusting, flaking or bleeding’ or ‘gets larger or more raised from the skin.’
