Former Home and Away actor Johnny Ruffo had the shock of his life when he went to the hospital complaining of a “migraine” and learned he needed emergency surgery to remove a brain tumour.
The 2011 X-Factor finalist shared the results of the surgery with fans, posting a photo of a gruesome-looking scar on Instagram on Thursday.
“Some things in life really put things into perspective. Hoping for a positive result. Keep me in your thoughts,” he wrote next to the image.
In a statement, the 29-year-old said that on Sunday he went into hospital with a migraine.
