Sarah-Jane Crawford has revealed she has suffered her second cancer scare in less than two years.

The former The Xtra Factor host had a lump removed from her right breast – and discovered another lump on her left breast earlier this month she also had a non-cancerous fibroid removed from her uterus.

She told The Sun: “The first thing I thought when I found the lump was that an operation to remove it would be my third in two years.

“I tried to separate emotions from it and told myself that if I needed it removed, that’s what I would do. But the operations are traumatic. I’m not very good under general anaesthetic.”

The presenter also revealed that her uterus surgery left her so ill that that she had double vision for weeks after the operation.

She added: “I cry and panic because there’s always the fear you won’t wake up.”

Sarah thankfully learned this lump was harmless after a biopsy but she is, however, known as a high risk for breast cancer in future.

Sarah explained why she’s speaking out about her ordeal, saying: “I’m speaking about this now to encourage other women to keep checking and make sure if there’s a problem they insist on screening and ultrasound scans.

"Even if their doctor says it’s a lump they should ignore, if they instinctively know something’s wrong, they should get a second opinion.

“There are lots of women around us making brave decisions, like Angelina Jolie, who had her ovaries removed after a double mastectomy. Women like her give me the courage to think if it was ever recommended that I have a breast removed, I would.

“You do what you have to do. After all, you know your body better than anyone else.”
