Frankie Bridge reveals doctors have discovered a ‘really rare’ tumour in her neck: ‘I felt sick when they told me’

Frankie Bridge has revealed doctors recently discovered a ‘rare’ tumour after taking her in for an MRI scan. 

The Saturdays singer, 35, explained they were trying to find the source of her constant headaches when they found the lump in her neck.  

Speaking on Tuesday’s Loose Women, the mother-of-two revealed that thankfully, the tumour is benign, but it was understandably a terrifying ordeal. 

Frankie explained: ‘I’ve recently had an MRI and just by chance they found something on my neck so I had to have another MRI.

‘It turned out to be a tumour which is benign, it doesn’t need treating, it’s absolutely fine.’

Frankie revealed that the diagnosis came at the worst possible time, as her husband Wayne Bridge was away and she was singlehandedly caring for their sons Parker, nine and Carter, seven. 

She continued: ‘But for that first week when the doctor rang me, I was on my own, Wayne was away. I was in the middle of cooking the boys dinner.

‘Instantly I thought, “that’s it, this is my time, I’m going to be sick.” I did go straight to, “oh God I’m gonna die.”

‘Luckily for me, it’s really rare and they only came across it because they were scanning me for my headaches.

‘That week of not telling the kids, my friends, anything like that, I kind of breezed through the week.’

In August, Frankie revealed she was suffering from headaches brought on by muscle tension in her neck and jaw. 

She explained she was trying to alleviate tension in her neck that came from clenching her jaw too frequently and had booked in to get muscle relaxer injections. 

Frankie said: ‘No matter how many massages I get… I’m a big jaw clencher. So I’ve always got tension neck ache which always leads to tension headaches. So I thought I’d try something new with @natalikellyldn.’

Aesthetic practitioner Natali Kelly then explained the treatment, saying she would be injecting a neuromodulator to relax the muscles for ‘less pain and an elongated swanlike neck’.

Frankie confessed to her followers: ‘I was definitely nervous. Can you tell?! But I couldn’t actually feel anything! Phew! I’ll let you know if it helps!’

At the beginning of last year, Frankie’s mother Victoria Sandford was diagnosed with breast cancer, with the singer calling the ‘horrific’ diagnosis a wake up call.

Frankie explained her mother was lucky to have caught the illness early but admitted it gave her shock as she never thought to check herself for any lumps.

She told the Mirror in June: ‘My mum was diagnosed with stage 2, grade 3 breast cancer at the beginning of the year. She caught it early but it was quite aggressive.

‘She shielded me from it a lot, so I don’t think I ever saw her at rock bottom, but I saw the chemotherapy taking its toll at the end.

‘She’s finished treatment now and is coming out of the other side but it’s not over yet, so it’s scary to talk about.’

Frankie said she never checked her breasts because nobody in her family had ever had cancer, but she has now changed her ways. 

She added: ‘My mum’s diagnosis has made me go, ‘Oh God, it could be anyone’. And early diagnosis makes such a big difference.’
