Shirley Ballas is ‘very grateful’ fans spotted her lump on live TV

Last September, viewers of the dancing competition let Shirley Ballas know that when she raised her arm, they noticed a concerning lump. Expressing her gratitude, the global coach for dancers posted a video of herself on Instagram. On the social media platform, she said: “To those people who were concerned enough to send me messages that they saw lumps and bumps, I am very, very grateful.”

Luckily for the 62-year-old, she got the all-clear, meaning there was no cancer.

In a recent post, dated Wednesday, September 28, 2022, Ballas posted: “I value @macmillancancer so much.

“They are there for you whenever you need them most, whatever you have on your mind.

“A Coffee Morning is a brilliant way of supporting them so they can be there for even more people affected by cancer.

A tumour will affect you differently depending on where it is, how big it is, and if it has spread elsewhere in the body.

Treatment will also differ depending on your own health and the tumour.

Shirley Ballas stars on Strictly Come Dancing, on BBC One on Saturday, October 1 at 6.30pm.

“If you’re hosting one on Friday, thank you, and if you need one to attend just search ‘Coffee Morning’ to find one near you.”

The NHS says a lump that is noticeably increasing in size on the body should be checked out by a medical professional.

“It’s important to regularly check your breasts, underarms, groin and testicles for any new lumps or changes,” the health body adds.

Macmillan points out three ways to recognise the symptoms of cancer, which are ongoing, unexplained, and unusual symptoms.
