Woman (UK) - - Front Page -

Janet Street-porter has re­vealed she’s got skin cancer on her nose. The Loose Women pan­el­list, 73, told view­ers, ‘I showed this tiny spot on my nose to a der­ma­tol­o­gist and he im­me­di­ately re­ferred me to a con­sul­tant… I’ve got a basal cell car­ci­noma, which is a form of skin cancer. It has to be re­moved, oth­er­wise it’s go­ing to get big­ger and big­ger.’

The out­spo­ken TV star ad­mit­ted she’s spent most of lock­down feel­ing anx­ious about the up­com­ing surgery. ‘I was about to have it re­moved, then lock­down hap­pened… I’ve spent the whole of lock­down get­ting more and more anx­ious.’

Janet was keen to raise aware­ness of the im­por­tance of get­ting even the small­est blem­ishes checked. She said, ‘This kind of cancer grows un­der the skin.’
