Love Island star shares result of surgery after fans spotted lump on her throat

Love Island star Samie Elishi has shared the result of her recent surgery after fans spotted a 'worrying' lump on her throat.

The former estate agent co-ordinator, 23, underwent a Hemithyroidectomy operation to remove the growth, which Samie told fans was thankfully benign after previously undergoing tests to check if it was cancerous.

Taking to Instagram giving her followers a health update, Samie said: "We have just got some really good news, my surgeon has just called me and said that the lump in my neck is not cancerous and it's just a benign tumour. So we have Prosecco to celebrate," to which her pal replied: "Cheers to that!"

Later on in the video, Samie, who found fame on Winter Love Island earlier this year, continued: "I just wanted to close off the vlog on the highest note ever. I was just so happy when my surgeon called me yesterday. It was a bit overwhelming I was in so much shock - bless him to call me directly as well, I just think that was so nice of him, he didn't have to do that. But yeah the worry is now over and the lump is out."

The TV star added it was always good to "get these things checked and taken out" to 'be on the safe side', saying she didn't regret the surgery because the "results couldn't be any better."

Samie was admitted to the hospital earlier this week for her surgery before updating fans from her hospital bed. Sharing a snap of herself with a plaster on her throat and a drip in her hand, she wrote: "My neck is currently still healing and this first picture was taken today after I removed the bandage but I couldn’t be happier with how neat it is."

The reality TV star, who made the final of Love Island, says she wouldn't have got the lump checked out if fans hadn't gotten in touch with her while she was on the show.

Speaking to BBC's Newsbeat, she said: "After the villa, my family and friends said they'd been getting messages from girls saying I have a lump on my neck and these girls had been sending pictures saying I could have thyroid cancer. "I thought people are crazy and dismissed it. I had no idea. I could've had this on my neck for another 10 years. I feel like my purpose for going on the show was to discover this. It was only because I went on the show that fans who were so invested actually spotted it."
