Lily Allen - Lily Allen Had Therapy After 'Cancer' Scare

Pop star Lily Allen booked a session with her psychotherapist for the first time in more than a year after she became convinced a blood blister on her hand was skin cancer.

The Smile hitmaker has previously talked of how counselling has helped her to deal with life's lows but she has barely received any treatment in recent years because she is settled into family life.

However, the singer admits she started to become "manic" again while gearing up for the relaunch of her music career this year (14) after a four-year hiatus, and she knew it was time for a session on the couch when she wrongly convinced herself she had cancer.

Allen tells Beat magazine, "(I have therapy) when I need it. I had a session last week for the first time in a year. My godfather had died, a friend had turned into the Wolf of Wall Street, and another friend is having a bad time, and I try and mother everyone. And trying to do that while relaunching a pop career and looking after two children got a bit much for a minute.

"I'd been so manic. I got home and took off a ring, and there was a big black mole. I Googled it, and it said 'melanoma'. I didn't want to tell (my husband) Sam. Eventually I went to the doctor - it was a blood blister. But I made an appointment with my shrink the next day."
