Married At First Sight Australia star Lauren Huntriss, 33, has revealed she was left sobbing after being informed her “suspicious” pimple was cancerous back in 2015.
The reality star, who was paired with Matthew Bennett on the hit show, spoke about her health scare in a post on Instagram, while encouraging her fans to look out for skin cancer symptoms.
Lauren found out the news when she went to see a dermatologist about her acne.
During the appointment, the medic decided to fully investigate the cause of a pimple on her nose.
The blemish was diagnosed as skin cancer and Lauren then underwent treatment to remove it.
She started off her post by saying: “Lets talk skin cancer. I first noticed what looked like just another pimple on my poor face so I kept picking and picking but it just wouldn’t go away.
“A few months later I noticed it had grown a bit and started looking more like a wort. Again I would pick but this time it kept bleeding.
“Funnily enough I decided to make an appointment with a dermatologist to talk about treatment options for my acne…
“On observation the dermatologist noticed this spot on my nose. He said it looked suspicious so took a biopsy. Results came back and guess what?… it was a skin cancer! ‘But I’m only 27!’ I said at the time.”
