Sarah Ferguson’s ‘shock’ At Skin Cancer Diagnosis

The Duchess of York has spoken of her “shock” at being diagnosed with malignant melanoma, but says she is in “good spirits”.

In an Instagram post, she said she was “grateful for the many messages of love and support”.

The melanoma was discovered following the removal of a cancerous mole during treatment for breast cancer.

The duchess, Sarah Ferguson, had several moles removed and analysed while having reconstructive surgery.

The duchess is the third royal to announce a medical procedure this week.

“I have been taking some time to myself as I have been diagnosed with malignant melanoma, a form of skin cancer,” she said on Instagram on Monday.

It was her second cancer diagnosis within a year after being diagnosed with breast cancer in the summer and having undergone a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery.

“Naturally another cancer diagnosis has been a shock, but I’m in good spirits and grateful for the many messages of love and support.”

On Sunday her spokesman had said: “Her dermatologist asked that several moles were removed and analysed at the same time as the duchess was undergoing reconstructive surgery following her mastectomy, and one of these has been identified as cancerous.

She was undergoing further investigations to ensure this had been caught in the early stages, he added.
