X Factor winner Alexandra Burke found lump
Alexandra Burke has revealed that she had a breast cancer scare earlier this year.
The X Factor 2008 winner feared for her health after finding a lump the size of a 50p piece.
‘I got completely freaked out,’ Alexandra, 22, tells the Daily Mirror.
‘I was in the shower checking myself, and that’s when I realised you need to go to a doctor and start going twice a year.’
Fortunately, tests found that the lump was just a benign cyst.
Their journey was filmed for ITV2 documentary Denise & Fearne’s Charity Trek and will air on Monday 1 November at 9pm.
