Actress Malandra Burrows attends the 49th Variety Club Race Day at Sandown race course on September 1, 2007 in London, England.

Burrows was due to have a routine mammogram in 2020, but it was cancelled due to the pandemic.

She believes the cancer may have been discovered earlier if the appointment had not been rescheduled.

In an interview with Ok! Burrows said that she found the lump on her breast in January while exercising.

She immediately rang her doctor who scheduled her an appointment on the same day.

Within weeks she has undergone various tests and scans which revealed the cancer in her breast.

Burrows will not be given a prognosis until she has completed the chemotherapy course, due to take place over the next six months.
