Michelle Heaton says she may need a hysterectomy as a preventative measure against cancer
The Liberty X star has revealed the news to fans that she faces the decision of either going through the full procedure, or having her ovaries removed as originally thought.
Writing in her weekly column for OK! magazine, she said: ''We had my appointment with Dr. Sheridan - the surgeon I used for my C-section with AJ - about my dreaded ovarian removal.
''He knows I like to have it straight and get on with it, but within minutes we were talking about the possibility of having a full hysterectomy instead of just having my ovaries removed.''
Michelle - who was diagnosed with a mutated BRCA2 gene, and decided to have a double mastectomy to alleviate her high risk of cancer in 2012 - and her husband Hugh Hanley face the difficult decision together.
She continued: ''It's such a long story and there are so many pros and cons for both options.
''I suppose the short of it is that I wish I wasn't faced with the decision of having to go through such a life-changing operation.
''Whichever procedure I do decide to go through with, it'll effect my life forever in the name of 'prevention', not 'treatment' and it's a very personal choice, and a tough one at that.''
