How did Shirley Ballas find out she might be experiencing health issues?

Shirley’s abnormal hormone levels were discovered as doctors looked for a suspected lump in her armpit.

A couple of weeks ago some Strictly viewers informed Shirley they had noticed what they thought to be a lump as she raised her arm.

Earlier this week, following blood tests, she thanked fans: “I love you all.”

She previously said after receiving the concerning messages from viewers: “I did some self-check on myself and I couldn’t feel anything except a tiny little node at the back. But I’m going to go to the doctors on Tuesday.

“To all women out there please keep checking yourself. To those people that were concerned enough to send me messages saying they saw lumps and bumps, I am very, very grateful.”

Shirley had her breast implants removed in 2019 after a doctor told her he could not see behind them.

A growth on her shoulder, which was found to be benign, was removed earlier this year.
