Sawalha, 57, also urged people to get seen if there was anything they were worrying about.

"The only reason I’m posting these pics is because I want to catch your eye and urge you if you have been worrying about any symptoms you’ve been experiencing to bite the bullet and get yourself seen!" she said.

"Delaying things will only cause more worry.

"I’m not going to lie I’ve been worried sick myself recently but was given the all clear on Monday! I only wish I had dealt with it earlier so I didn’t get myself into such a pickle."
