Kerry Katona has spoken about a recent health scare after finding a lump around her armpit.

The 41-year-old said she 'feared the worst' upon making the discovery.

Kerry wrote in her column for New! magazine : "I went to the doctors about a lump in my armpit earlier this year after I noticed it while I was on a photo shoot.

"It ended up just being a lymph node, but I did really fear the worst. When you have a health scare, your life can be taken out of your hands in a split second."

Earlier this year Kerry revealed on Steph's Packed Lunch how the lump was spotted by a fan on social media.

She told host Steph McGovern: "It was really really scary.

"I did a photo shoot for my clothing range and there was a picture of my arm up. You can see the lump on my armpit. Someone put a comment to get it checked.

"I was in the shower and I shaved that armpit and I thought, 'yeah it is a bit of a big lump,' and then when I've gone to shave the other armpit I was like the difference in the lump that was here to this armpit.

"The last six weeks my right breast had swollen out times five times bigger than my left.

"I had surgery about a year and a half before on my breasts. Everything was all fine and then six weeks prior to the lump, I kept getting a really achy feeling in my breast. It was so painful.

"I thought something's not right, the surgery has gone wrong. And then when I found the lump I did the worst thing you could possibly do, I went on Google.

"The difference in the breast was so dramatic that I've come out of the shower to my fiancé and I'm immediately crying.

"I thought I'd gone through addiction, I've gone through bankruptcy, I've gone through mental health and I can control all of those, that’s in my power.

"And then I thought that's it, I'm going to go to the doctors and they’re going to tell me… it really upsets me… you've got three, six months left."

Kerry continued: "This was after Sarah Harding got diagnosed. That made me feel we're not invincible, whether you’re on the TV, whether you’re a judge or lawyer or TV presenter.

"It doesn't matter who you are. You're not invincible to whether it’s Covid or cancer."
