But her experiences have shaped have shaped how she sees her new role as Minister for Disabled People.On Wear It Pink Day it is imperative women continue to check their breasts and contact their doctor without delay if they are concerned.

Janey Godley has revealed she is taking "short panic attacks" following her Stage three cancer diagnosis.

The Scots comic had a hysterectomy nine days ago but has now been diagnosed with Stage 3b cancer which means the disease has spread beyond her ovaries and she will require further treatment.

Janey will need to undergo chemotherapy as her cancer has now been classed as advanced.

She is currently staying with a friend while she recovers from her operation and said alongside her family she had been unpacking the "big this is cancer stage three parcel".

Cancer care WILL be sacrificed winter if Covid spirals, doctors warn

  Cancer care WILL be sacrificed winter if Covid spirals, doctors warn Professor Mike Griffin, a cancer surgeon, said he is concerned cancer care in England 'will take a hit again in the coming weeks over winter' due to the pressures already facing the NHS. Increasing numbers of people attending A&E, a lack of hospital beds and nursing and social care shortages could cause problems, he said. Professor Pat Price, a consultant clinical oncologist, also revealed cancer units have been ordered to make sure a tenth of their workforce are available to be redeployed to NHS frontlines this winter.

Janey initially thought she would get back to touring following her operation and never imagined she would need chemotherapy.

In an video posted on social media, she said: "I thought that if I got the hysterectomy that would be the end of everything but it's not, it's the beginning because I have got Stage three ovarian cancer.

"I thought the big operation, that would be it, get on with everything, heal up the scar, get back on tour. Not so, my life has completely changed and I have to process what this means now and it is obviously going to mean chemotherapy and treatment.

"I don't have any other options other than pretending it doesn't exist and buying a round the world plane ticket and just flying round the world pretending it doesn't exist. And I don't think that's an option, I think the best option is to admit that this exists and to process it."

Janey later added: "I have very short panic attacks thinking about it but it is what it is and I don't really have any other options other than to go through with all this.

"I'm absolutely terrified. I'm not brave in the least, I'm frightened and in shock and I've got really good people round about me, that's the best thing I can tell you."

Thanking her followers for their well wishes and support, Janey said she would try her best to keep everyone updated on her journey.
