SCARLETT Moffatt has faced a cancer scare after getting abnormal smear test results.
The 29-year-old bravely posted about her experience on Instagram as she waits to hear back from the hospital.
Scarlett told fans something had been “detected” during her last smear test – and had to go for a biopsy.
She said she will find out her results this week.
“I went for the smear, something came back”, Scarlett admitted.
“They detected something. Lots of people have to go for biopsies and again I worked myself up about it, but I still went.
“It was four minutes of discomfort for something that as a little bit uncomfortable, but I went because could save my life.
“The sooner they pick it up, it’s easier to manage, I get my results back in a couple of days.
“And hopefully it comes back to say that in a year’s time I’ll have to go for a smear test or even fingers crossed it’ll say in three years time you’ll have to go for a smear test.
“But it is so important. Imagine if I kept leaving it and leaving it.
