Duchess of York was diagnosed with melanoma after breast cancer treatment
Sarah Ferguson was diagnosed with skin cancer shortly after being treated for another type of cancer. Last year, the Duchess of York underwent surgery for breast cancer.
A mole was removed from the royal's body, which turned out to be malignant melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer. This was reported by the Daily Mail.
According to insiders, Prince Andrew's ex-wife remains "positive" despite the terrible news she was told just days after Christmas. The family is hopeful that the cancer was detected at an early stage. Ferguson will undergo the necessary tests to make sure.
The Duchess's father, Roland Ferguson, was diagnosed with prostate cancer and skin cancer 10 years before his death. Last fall, the Duchess of York admitted that she was so afraid of getting another type of cancer that she sometimes woke up in panic in the middle of the night.
