Molly-Mae Hague has revealed she’s received a worrying diagnosis from doctors after a recent operation to remove a mole.
The Love Island star, 21, had surgery to remove the mole on her leg last month as doctors feared it could become cancerous.
Taking to her Instagram stories on Thursday, Molly-Mae said she has received bad news from the doctor that still hasn’t sunk in yet.
She’s told fans that she now has to have another operation, but isn’t allowed to share her full diagnosis until after she has her second surgery.
Molly-Mae wrote: “So about three weeks ago now I was advised that a mole I had on my leg needed removing.
“I had the procedure done within a few days.
“Last week I received my results back and it’s safe to say they were not at all what I was expecting.
“I’ve been trying to process the information I received whilst being super busy with work and it’s not been easy.
“I’m still not able to give my full diagnosis until my further surgery has taken place and I’ve received those results but for now I’m just trying to stay positive.”
She continued: “I never thought at 21 something like this would happen to me and it’s very scary but all I know is that I absolutely need to share my story and what I’m going through to raise awareness of my situation.
“I’ll keep you all updated as much as I can, I’ve already received so many lovely messages from you guys and I appreciate it so much.
“Your health must come first and I know this is something that some of my followers may have already gone through…. I’d love to hear from you guys.'”
Last month she shared photos of her scar and her bandaged leg following her first operation, as well as a picture of the mole she’d had removed.
Molly-Mae had the mole checked three times in total before her operation.
“Get your moles checked out people!!! It is so unbelievably important,” penned Molly-Mae.
“I’ve had this checked three times now by different consultants just to be sure.”
