The radio star confirmed this morning that while there’s nothing to be worried about, she is headed in to surgery today to have a group of pre-cancerous cells removed.
While explaining the problem, she took the opportunity to remind Rove & Sam listeners that there are two types of pap smears: the kind that tests for STIs, and the kind that tests for pre-cancerous and cancerous cells.
Sam reminded everyone that’s important to get both types done to look after yourself – and of course, the longer you leave it, the more risky it can be.
Watch Sam’s message here:
“If you don’t catch it at this stage it can advance to scarier things,” Sam said.
“Go to the doctors and get a pap smear. I know so many of my friends that put them off. It’s a really common thing and easily treated.”
We’re wishing Sam a quick recovery from her procedure today – and, more importantly, we’re 100% behind her message.
