I was worried my son Mark Wright had cancer and it kept me awake at night, says mum Carol

CAROL Wright has revealed she was terrified son Mark had cancer after he revealed a lump under his armpit.

The 62-year-old appeared on Loose Women today and opened up about how she felt before Mark, 34, received the all-clear from doctors.

Former Towie star Carol said: "It had been there for a while and we didn't worry about it because my husband's also got the same lump, but much smaller.

"And then it started to grow. When he started telling us it was growing we became a bit concerned."

But the night before Mark went in for his operation Carol started thinking about the possible outcomes.

She said: "It wasn't until the night before his op that I actually laid in bed with my husband and said, 'say this is serious'. My husband reassured me and said, 'no, he's going to be fine'. That's the way he deals with things.

"And I laid awake that night thinking, 'what would we do if it is actually cancer?' But thank God it wasn't."

When asked by Janet Street Porter Carol confirmed that Mark's lump thankfully wasn't cancer.

Giving an update on Mark's recovery, she added: "He's fine, he showed me the scar last night and it looks really good. It's really healed amazingly."

Revealing his lump last month, Mark wrote on Instagram: "I discovered a lump in my breast/armpit area. Not very big, but enough to cause concern and to be cautious enough to get it checked.

"I saw a doctor who passed it on as “a fatty lump that doesn’t need any treatment” so I just left it.

"After some time the lump grew and began to bother me. I am someone that when it comes to life in general, I leave no stone unturned. When it involves health, this idiom quadruples.

"I saw another specialist who happens to be a breast consultant for a second opinion.

"If you notice anything that doesn’t look or feel quite right. Don’t leave it.

"Nothing in life is more important than your health and well-being. Get checked, check yourself and make sure you take good care of yourself."
