Sarah Ferguson, the former spouse of Prince Andrew, has revealed that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer and recently underwent surgery.

The announcement was made during an episode of her podcast, "Tea Talks with the Duchess and Sarah," hosted by Sarah Thomson.

Thomson informed the listeners about the Duchess's health update and emphasized her strength and determination.

Despite the surgery being scheduled for the day after the podcast was recorded, the Duchess insisted on releasing it to raise awareness about the importance of regular cancer screenings.

Ferguson discussed her long-standing involvement with the Teenage Cancer Trust and her personal connection to the cause, having witnessed the passing of her stepfather and her father's battle with cancer.

She highlighted the significance of screenings and shared her decision to undergo a mastectomy, a surgical procedure recommended by the National Cancer Institute for the removal of breast tissue.

Ferguson encouraged everyone to prioritize their health and urged them to get checked and screened regularly.

Her breast cancer diagnosis was a result of a routine mammogram prompted by her sister's insistence on maintaining the screening appointment.
