Loose Women’s Janet Street-Porter opened up about an operation to remove skin cancer from her face and unveiled a scar on her nose.

The outspoken panelist appeared on the popular show today to give an update on her health following the operation last Wednesday.

Janet admitted she was “in a state” over the diagnosis and urged people to check over their skin to maximise the chances of staying safe.

Speaking via video link, Janet said: “I had a little dot on my nose that I thought was an insect bite.

“A dermatologist referred me to a surgeon who said it was a basal cell carcinoma, which is a form of skin cancer.

“So last Wednesday I went and they anaesthetised my nose… basically it’s the kind of surgery where they slice away just the top part of your skin and then they go and analyse it, so they’re only removing the bare minimum of the cells.

A thin purple scar could be seen on the media star’s nose but she explained she was “feeling very positive”.

Janet added: “The surgeon said to me he’s very confident that in a few months you won’t see the scar at all. And tomorrow I’m going to have the stitches out so next week, presumably, I’ll look a little bit different.

“At the end of the day, it’s just a scar, and I’ve still got a nose and a face and everything else and I’m feeling very positive about it.”

Advising others to be vigilant to skin changes, Janet said: “Do look at the little blemishes on your skin and especially moles, if they change size or shape or anything… which I always did. I was always careful. I always put factor 50 on my face.”

She added: “Since I mentioned it on Loose Women last week, hundreds of you have got in touch to say you’ve had the same procedure or you’re waiting for it. It’s nothing to be scared about, just get it done.”
