    Letting her blonde locks fall loose down her shoulders, Molly-Mae completed her look by carrying a black handbag. 

    Maura, 29, sported a navy mini dress with a high collar which she wore with a black and cream varsity jacket.

    The Irish beauty styled her brunette locks into an updo while she put safety first with a face mask.

    Tommy also opted for a casual look, wearing a black hoodie with matching tracksuit bottoms and a padded coat. 

    It comes after Molly-Mae shared a worrying post to her Instagram Stories on Thursday afternoon, and while she couldn’t reveal exactly what doctors had found just yet, she said she has to undergo further surgery.

    She wrote: ‘So about three weeks ago now I was advised that a mole I had on my leg needed removing. I had the procedure done within a few days.

    ‘Last week I received my results back and it’s safe to say they were not at all what I was expecting.

    ‘I’ve been trying to process the information I received whilst being super busy with work and it’s not been easy.

    ‘I’m still not able to give my full diagnosis until my further surgery has taken place and I’ve received those results but for now I’m just trying to stay positive.’

    She continued: ‘I never thought at 21 something like this would happen to me and it’s very scary but all I know is that I absolutely need to share my story and what I’m going through to raise awareness of my situation.

    ‘I’ll keep you all updated as much as I can, I’ve already received so many lovely messages from you guys and I appreciate it so much.

    ‘Your health must come first and I know this is something that some of my followers may have already gone through…. I’d love to hear from you guys.’

    Last month, Molly-Mae shared a snap of her bandaged scar, explaining she decided to have it removed after getting multiple doctors’ opinions about whether it could become cancerous.

    She tearfully recalled her cancer scare after visiting a doctor three times to have her mole examined but reassured fans at the time it turned out to be non-cancerous.

    Molly-Mae shared a snap of the bandage on her leg, writing: ‘So this is what I’ve been up to today…

    ‘Some of you may remember me talking about the mole that was here a few weeks ago on my story.

    ‘Not going to go into too much detail until I have my results back next week but this just goes to show how important getting different doctors’ opinions is.

    ‘So relieved to have it gone, I’ll keep you all updated. I just need to share this because I can’t stress the important of this situation enough.’

    In the post Molly-Mae also included a snap of the original mole on her leg to show the true extent of the procedure.

    Three weeks earlier the star tearfully told fans about her recent cancer scare after noticing the mole on her calf.

    Molly-Mae added that it was her mum Debbie who first noticed the mole while she was in the Love Island villa, before pleading with her fans to get any unusual marks checked out.

    In a series of videos she posted to Instagram Stories, Molly-Mae admitted she’d been moved to tears after watching a Stand Up To Cancer segment about Emily Hayward.

    Emily died in June 2018 after being diagnosed with skin cancer seven years earlier when she was just 17, and documented her battle with the disease on a YouTube channel.

    Molly-Mae then told her followers she’d found a similar mole on her calf when she was in the Love Island villa last year.

    She explained: ‘And I actually found a mole on the back of my calf about a year or so ago and had it checked, obviously I’m so blessed that mine wasn’t cancerous, but it just made me so upset that like ”what does she do to deserve that? Who deserves that?”

    ‘It is just the worst thing in the world. It’s just to comprehend for families that have to go through it, how much of a struggle it must be for people who actually deal with cancer. It just broke my heart watching that.’

    Molly-Mae went onto urge her followers to get any unusual moles checked out, and shared a snap of the one she’d noticed on her calf.

    She said: ‘Get your moles checked out people!!! It is so unbelievably important. I’ve had this checked three times now by different consultants just to be sure.

    ‘This just appeared out of nowhere for me and my mum actually noticed it when I was on Love Island through watching me on TV…’

    MELANOMA IS THE MOST DANGEROUS FORM OF SKIN CANCER

    Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer. It happens after the DNA in skin cells is damaged (typically due to harmful UV rays) and then not repaired so it triggers mutations that can form malignant tumors. 

    Around 15,900 new cases occur every year in the UK, with 2,285 Britons dying from the disease in 2016, according to Cancer Research UK statistics. 

    Causes

    • Sun exposure: UV and UVB rays from the sun and tanning beds are harmful to the skin
    • Moles: The more moles you have, the greater the risk for getting melanoma 
    • Skin type: Fairer skin has a higher risk for getting melanoma
    • Hair color: Red heads are more at risk than others
    • Personal history: If you’ve had melanoma once, then you are more likely to get it again
    • Family history: If previous relatives have been diagnosed, then that increases your risk

    Treatment 

    • Removal of the melanoma:

    This can be done by removing the entire section of the tumor or by the surgeon removing the skin layer by layer. When a surgeon removes it layer by layer, this helps them figure out exactly where the cancer stops so they don’t have to remove more skin than is necessary. 

    • Skin grafting: 

    The patient can decide to use a skin graft if the surgery has left behind discoloration or an indent. 

    • Immunotherapy, radiation treatment or chemotherapy: 

    This is needed if the cancer reaches stage III or IV. That means that the cancerous cells have spread to the lymph nodes or other organs in the body. 

    Prevention

    • Use sunscreen and do not burn
    • Avoid tanning outside and in beds 
    • Apply sunscreen 30 minutes before going outside
    • Keep newborns out of the sun
    • Examine your skin every month
    • See your physician every year for a skin exam
