FORMER Towie star Shelby Tribble is having a biopsy after a lump in her boob 'has got bigger'.
The 30-year-old admits not getting it checked out when she initially noticed the abnormality.
But after noticing it had grown, Shelby went straight to the doctors and was rushed for tests.
Opening up to her fans about the medical scare, Shelby said today: "I noticed a lump in my boob, but didn't think anything of it, which is silly.
"I thought it had gotten bigger so went to my GP who referred me to be checked ASAP.
"They think the lump is a Fibroadenoma but I had a biopsy taken today to be safe.
