Mark Wright looks downcast as he's seen for the first time since having 12cm tumour removed following cancer scare

MARK Wright painted a sombre picture as he was spotted for the first time since his operation to remove a tumour.

The 34-year-old former Towie star, who is married to Michelle Keegan, looked very serious while out in his native Essex after recovering from a cancer scare.

He cut a casual figure in dark blue joggers, forest green puffer vest over a grey top and matching flat cap hat.

Mark carried a Louis Vuitton holdall and looked downcast as he got on with his errangs.

The star was most recently recovering in hospital after an operation to remove a 12cm tumour from his body.

He explained he found the lump in his "breast/armpit area" and was told not to worry – but returned to medics when it started to grow.

The star shared a topless picture of himself that showed the lump on his body alongside a shot of the tumour measuring 12cm beside a ruler.

Mark told his followers: "Ok, it’s been a tough call whether or not to speak about this.

"One part of me wants to keep something like this private and the other part is thinking, if I can help/potentially save 1 person, well…. this is the right thing to do.

"So here goes. I discovered a lump in my breast/armpit area. Not very big, but enough to cause concern and to be cautious enough to get it checked.

"I saw a doctor who passed it on as 'a fatty lump that doesn’t need any treatment' so I just left it.

"After some time the lump grew and began to bother me. I am someone that when it comes to life in general, I leave no stone unturned. When it involves health, this idiom quadruples.

"I saw another specialist who happens to be a breast consultant for a second opinion.

"He was certain after seeing an ultrasound scan that it was a LIPOMA (a BENIGN soft tissue tumour).

"However with it being rather large, he had a tiny bit of concern that it has/could turn in to a SARCOMA (a cancerous malignant tumour).

"However he was not 100% either way so to be more sure I had an MRI [a detailed body scan].

"From the result of the MRI, still this consultant did not want to rule out the worst because of the speed and the size of the growth.

"At this stage I moved on to a SARCOMA specialist."

"This specialist saw the scans around 10 days ago and today I was in theatre having this little git removed," he said referring to the tumour.

"His fast and incredible turn around was due to the fact he did not want to leave it any longer and wanted it out to prevent the rare risk of a LIPOMA turning into a sarcoma overtime.

"He also could not 100% confirm by the MRI that this was definitely a benign tumour and not something more sinister.

"The tumour will be sent off for further testing just to be 110% sure but this top doctor is certain from his incredible experience that we have done the job and there is nothing sinister to worry about. So I’m all good 👌🏻.

"MORAL OF THE STORY: If you notice anything that doesn’t look or feel quite right. Don’t leave it.

"Nothing in life is more important than your health and well-being. Get checked, check yourself and make sure you take good care of yourself. 💙."
