The brilliant actress was fortunate enough that the growth was not cancerous. She, however. took the front seat as she went on Instagram to nudge ladies to check their breast for any lumps.
"Ladies, please check your breasts for any lumps, and when you do find one don’t take three years like I did (because of) my crippling fear of injections (which) made me the best procrastinator but it got bigger and bigger and more painful over time until I decided to go get it checked out."
