Faye Winter has shared an update after finding a lump on her breast during a holiday to Greece and undergoing a mammogram to get it checked.
The former Love Island star, 27, took to Instagram this week to inform fans that the lump is an inflamed lymph gland and is not something to worry about – admitting there were "happy tears all around" as she learned the relieving news.
Posting a selfie to her Instagram Stories, she explained that everything "went well", before returning to urge fans to check their breasts regularly. Filming herself, Faye placed her hand under her left arm on the outside of her breast and explained: "I have a lump here, I can literally feel it now, I mean most people in my life feel it so sorry guys.
"Basically it is an inflamed lymph gland which is about three millimetres big, which doesn't even sound that big but I swear it's, like, big. And they would only start worrying about if it was 10 millimetres big, so you don't need to worry about it. its all great."
She went on: "But the amount of you that have messaged me and said you checked your boobs yesterday or the day before and you are going to the doctors, that is all I could ever have wished for.
"I'll be brutally honest, I never ever ever before checked, I didn't do it, it's just one of things and it wasn't until I put sunscreen on I was like, girls can you feel my boob please?"
Continuing that the lump "played on [her] mind", Faye explained her fans helped her to get help. The reality star continued: "The amount of you that have messaged me as well and said you fully understand, I just feel like its put my mind at ease and giving me a bit of reassurance because I really felt like I was letting you guys down."
"I'm back now, and just make sure that you check your boobs. They deserve it," she concluded. Faye found the lump while enjoying a girls' holiday to Crete with her fellow Love Island co-stars Liberty Poole and Sharon Gaffka – following her split from boyfriend Teddy Soares earlier this year.
Talking exclusively to OK! about the break-up, she admitted to 'going through a grieving process' as she gets used to being a 'stranger' with her ex.
She said: "There are still some days where I get really emotional, but it's been easier to try and move on knowing there is full closure now.”
Faye added: "It was definitely my decision to end the relationship." But she also said prior to the split there was a time she "didn't know if we were going to work things out". She revealed: "I was very open to seeing if there were small changes that could be made, but it didn’t work out that way."
