Molly-Mae Hague begs for advice as she finds ‘lump’ months after cancer scare

Molly-Mae Hague has begged her Instagram fans for advice after finding a ‘big lump’ on her finger just six months after she had a cancerous mole removed on her leg.

The 21-year-old former Love Island star and influencer took to her Instagram on Friday evening and shared a photo of her finger, which appeared to have an unusual shape to it.

She panicked over the ‘rock hard’ lump as she’s ‘had it for ages’ and ‘doesn’t know what it is’.

“I have a very weird/big lump on my finger and I have for ages now,” she said on her Story.

“No idea what it is! Bone? Nodule? It doesn’t hurt it is just rock hard! Doesn’t even look big here but it really sticks out!”

Molly-Mae broke down in tears last November as she learned a mole on her leg was a type of skin cancer – malignant melanoma.

The influencer first got the mole checked out by two dermatologists, but was reassured it was nothing to worry about.

However worried Molly-Mae eventually got a third professional opinion during a routine check-up as she felt something wasn’t quite right.

She said her mum first noticed it while she was on Love Island and it had since got bigger.

Talking about the scary experience in a video, Molly-Mae explained the third doctor instantly told her to get it removed.

The social media star was joined by boyfriend Tommy Fury as she made her way to the hospital for surgery.

The TV star was left “upset and angry” as she discussed what happened with her mole in a vlog at the time.

Molly-Mae said: “I cannot believe I was told by others doctors it was OK. I am so upset and angry. I just briefly asked this doctor when I was walking out. I was walking around with skin cancer on my leg.

“If I hadn’t of asked, I’d still have that mole on my leg now and I’d be none the wiser. It could be spreading through my body, you just never know.”

She added: “The main message of this vlog that you need to understand is to get your moles checked. I cannot stress this enough. Use your initiative and be smart. If I hadn’t I could have been in serious trouble.

“Don’t ever think it’ll be someone else’s story. You know when you see things on Instagram or on the news where you think, ‘That’s just someone else’s story it could never happen to me’. Guess what, it happened to me.”
