She first underwent treatment last year for carcinoma, a type of low grade skin cancer, on her shoulder.

Coleen, who is currently on her solo tour, has since found a second suspicious patch of skin and was told if left untreated it would grow into the deadliest type of skin cancer, melanoma, which can spread to other parts of the body.

The 58-year-old revealed today: “I got skin cancer last year.

“I had carcinoma on my shoulder which has now gone. And had chemo cream on my shoulder so that burned that off.

“And then I’ve got this tiny bit of dry skin. I’ve been saying for ages, it doesn’t matter how much oil or cream I put on it, it won’t go.

“But doctors said, ‘that is pre melanoma, it will turn into skin cancer which is worse that carcinoma.

“So I’m getting that treated when the tour ends.”

Nolan’s sister Linda is battling incurable brain cancer, and they lost their sister Bernie to breast cancer in 2010 aged 52.

Anne was the first Nolan sister to battle the disease.

Coleen told Scott Thomas on his podcast, Learning As I Go: “I’m not being funny I laughed when he said it because I thought, oh well of course I have, cancer loves my family.

“When I said to Linda, ‘do you ever think why me?’ She always says, ‘no, I always think why not me?’

“My sister has cancer in her brain so me coming home saying I’ve got pre melanoma seems dramatic and pathetic but it’s not, it’s really serious and if I don’t treat it it will be cancer.

“I can’t treat it before the tour, if he said I need to do that now I absolutely would have but I explained I’m going on tour and he said it does need treating, I wouldn’t leave it years but it does need treating.”

Her sister Anne was treated for breast cancer in 2020 and incredibly got the all clear.

But Linda last year shared a devastating message and cried as she told fans she didn’t know if she’d see another Christmas.

The Nolans singer, 64, is now living with incurable cancer, having been diagnosed with secondary breast cancer in 2017.

Brave Linda has been living life to the fullest.

She told Woman magazine in November: “When I wake up, I try to think it’s another day to enjoy, not it’s another day closer.

“Sometimes I slide down the wall and cry my eyes out because I’m having a bad day, but 99.9% of the time I’m OK.

“[Christmas will be] extra special because I don’t know if I’ll see it next year.

 

“It’s important now for me to make memories and to enjoy the time I’ve got left.”

Linda previously told how the cruel disease has sparked memory loss – leading her to forget the name of her niece, Coleen’s daughter.

Common signs of melanoma

LIKE with any cancer, survival rates are best when the illness is detected fast.

The most common sign of melanoma is the appearance of a new mole or a change in an existing mole.

    Mole with a mix of colours
    Large mole
    Mole that changes over time
    Swollen mole
    Bleeding mole
    Itchy mole
    Crusty mole
    Mole in the shape of a line under a nail

In women, the most common specific location for melanoma skin cancers in the UK is the legs.

Men are more likely to see melanomas in their trunk – the back or torso.
