Former supermodel Janice Dickinson, known for her fierce and fiery personality, showed a more vulnerable side in an interview with the Daily Mail on Monday, revealing that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Days before the diagnosis, Dickinson’s doctor found a lump the size of a pea on her right breast that didn’t “feel right” and told her it needed to became checked out.
The supermodel, who has battled anorexia, bulimia and alcoholism in the past, is no stranger to the surgeon’s operating table after undergoing a series of cosmetic procedures over the years. She is expected to return to surgery in the coming days to have a one-inch area of tissue around the lump in her breast removed.
