Speaking to indy100, she said:

“My mum noticed a lump on the front left side of my neck. She thought I lost a bit of weight, but three months later I visited the GP who confirmed that it was a thyroid nodule.”

Thyroid nodules can be completely harmless, but if one seems larger than normal it is always best to investigate.

Lorna had a biopsy after four months of scans, where she was told that it was cancerous.


“I felt numb. I didn’t believe it because I felt so well. At the time I was optioned for a Golden Globe-nominated TV series.

This isn’t what I thought cancer looked like. The minute you tell people, it’s the cancer face. I didn’t feel ill.”

The image below has been shared around, which shows the lump on Lorna’s neck, which has been circled.
