So Solid Crew’s Lisa Maffia is urging fans to get smear tests after revealing she has been diagnosed cervical cancer.
HER diagnosis comes a year after her mother’s battle with the disease having beat cervical cancer in 2011, before being diagnosed a second time.
As she went to a hospital Colposcopy appointment, Lisa, 41, took to Instagram to tell fans: “I never miss a smear test and I unfortunately have cervical cancer.”
She said she is “even more cautious” and reminded fans to get tested, stressing “it’s not a game”.
The star said that she was terrified, but that the appointment was “quick and easy”.
“it can happen to anyone”, she added.
In an appearance on Loose Women, Lisa told the panel her mother was told she had six months to live the first time she was diagnosed.
She explained her mum had left her smear test for five years, oblivious to the fact cancerous cells were spreading throughout her body.
Last year, Lisa and six other celebrities took part in ITV’s All New Monty to raise cancer awareness.
