Dayanara Torres, the ex Miss Universe, is diagnosed with skin cancer
Dayanara, 44, revealed her diagnosis on Instagram Monday: “Today I have some sad news…I have been diagnosed with skin cancer ‘melanoma’ from a big spot/mole I never paid attention to,” she wrote. (Dayanara spoke in Spanish in the actual video.) “Even though it was new, it had been for growing years and had an uneven surface,” she wrote.
She had the spot biopsied and had a second surgery last week. “The results unfortunately are positive,” she said. “Now we are waiting to see which treatment I will be receiving but they have already removed a big area from the back of my knee & also they have removed 2 lymph nodes at the top of my leg where it had already spread. Hoping it has not spread to any more areas or organs.” She said.
