Amy Dowden of Strictly provides a health update following a second cancer diagnosis

Amy Dowden has admitted that she is “not looking forward” to receiving treatment that will leave a scar that is always visible.

The 32-year-old Strictly Come Dancing contestant received her initial stage three breast cancer diagnosis in May and had a single mastectomy to treat it. However, more tumors were discovered after the surgery, and she was informed last month that chemotherapy was required.

The professional dancer most recently shared a hospital photo that she had taken in the bathroom mirror while wearing a medical gown and a face mask.

She scribbled over the image, “Really not looking forward to this.”. Another scar, this one only [an] inch long, but it will serve as a perpetual reminder and be [visible] always.

Dowden also shared a number of photos from the procedure, which included fitting the patient with a chemotherapy port. Dowden explained in the caption that she wanted to record her medical experience in order to “hopefully get others checking and for understanding what we go through. “.

I hadn’t expected it. Not easy… veins in me! Feeling painful, bruised, and sore, but the port will significantly improve over the coming weeks and enable me to dance when I’m feeling well enough,” she said.
