Lisa Maffia says she has cervical cancer as she urges fans to get smear tests

Lisa Maffia revealed she has been diagnosed with cervical cancer, as the singer urged her fans to get regular smear tests.

Taking to Instagram stories, she wrote: "Today I’m at the hospital for a colposcopy. I never miss a smear and unfortunately, I have cervical cancer, so I'm even more cautious.

"This is just a reminder to anyone that maybe has forgotten to get tested."

Highlighting the gravity of the situation, Lisa added: "It’s not a game!"

Later, Lisa shared a video of herself after leaving the doctor's appointment, letting fans know she had gotten the all-clear in her check-up.

The UKG star explained her mum has terminal cancer, and her diagnosis has caused a lot of hurt and pain for her in recent weeks.

She said: "Just like that I am already out. That was so quick and easy. As you can see I've been really upset.

"My mum has cervical cancer, terminal cancer, so going into this every time, I've had to go into this, which is now this is the third time that they’ve had to check my cells, it makes me absolutely petrified."

Lisa went on: "It’s just a message, I wanted to share this with all of you because it's so important to make sure you keep up to date with your smear checks and any checks in general on your health."

Giving the thumbs up to the camera, she added: "Be mindful of your health, because it can happen to anyone. So without being upset anymore, because everything is okay, I'm cool."

Daily Star Online has contacted Lisa's representatives for comment.
