“I’m so happy to see so many messages in my DMs from you all saying you’re going to have certain moles checked after watching…
“Don’t think it’ll be someone else’s story because you don’t ever know.”
The heartbroken 21-year-old said was on a trip with boyfriend Tommy Fury in Venice when she was given the news.
The difficult moment made her cry, and she told her family immediately.
The Love Island runner-up explained: “I’ve already shed tears about it. I’ve already like cried down the phone to every single family member.”
She explained the the mole had been sent to be examined by experts in America and she would receive the results later this month.
The star revealed she has cancelled all of her work for the next two weeks as she waits for an update.
She said: “I had the mole removed, the removal was fine. I got the call today, and he’s told me it is a malignant melanoma.
“That’s skin cancer basically, which is obviously petrifying, and shocking, and scary. I don’t even know what to really think or say.”
Molly-Mae claimed the mole had been given the all-clear by two dermatologists but showed it to a third doctor in passing while visiting for a different complaint.
She told fans: “As I was leaving the doctors, I said: ‘Oh, I’ve had my mole checked by two dermatologists and they said it’s fine.

“‘But can you just quickly give me a third opinion on this mole? I personally don’t feel like it looks quite right.’
“So then I lifted up my jogger and she took one look at the mole and was like: ‘Yeah, that needs to come off.’ And my heart started racing.
“She just looked quite concerned. I was by myself and I literally just went for a routine check up… and ended up finding out that I had to have a mole removed.”
Molly added: “I was walking round with skin cancer on my leg.”
