Roxy Jacenko reveals doctors have found another lump

The 37-year-old PR queen exclusively told Daily Mail Australia she received the worrying diagnosis last month, not long after her husband Oliver Curtis was released from jail.

Roxy Jacenko has revealed doctors have found another lump on her breast following her battle with breast cancer last year.

Roxy explained the discovery as a ‘scary’ moment for her after she was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016.

‘I had my 12-month check up just three weeks ago, it was a scary time as there was another lump in the same breast,’ she revealed.

‘It meant another core biopsy and further tests but I got the all clear last week which was a huge relief.’

The Sweaty Betty PR owner said she now has to have MRIs, mammograms and ultrasounds twice a year due to her age.

She also revealed that she has to take the ‘cancer blocking’ medication Tamoxifen daily for the next ten years on advice from her oncologist.

Roxy said Oliver never fails to remind her to take the medication.

‘We don’t talk about it, though he nags me every single morning to take my medicine,’ she said.

‘I don’t know why but I seem to forget unless nagged.’

Roxy was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, just three weeks after her husband was jailed for insider trading, but she was given the all clear after receiving treatment.

Roxy – who will dye her hair pink later this month for breast cancer awareness – also reflected on last year’s diagnosis after her husband was convicted of conspiracy to commit insider trading.

Oliver wept from Parklea Prison, in Sydney’s north west, after Roxy broke the new to him during a brief phone call.

‘It was a very, very hard thing to tell him given he wasn’t in a position to be able to help,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.

‘Delivering the news over a six minute phone call is something I will never forget, and I doubt he will either – he just cried.’

But the mother of Pixie, six, and Hunter, three, said she refused to feel sorry for herself despite her life being in ‘total disarray.’

‘I wanted to make sure my life remained as normal as it could for my children,’ she said.

‘Already life was in total disarray. I had gone from having a husband at home to sitting through a two-week Supreme Court trial, on to jail time, and then cancer.

‘I almost think I was forced into just getting on with it, there was no shoulder to cry on, it was me and the kids, it was them realistically that made me focus and keep on going.’

Roxy will be colouring her hair pink with a team at hairdressing company TONI&GUY on October 24 to help raise awareness and donations Australia-wide for breast cancer charities.

Throughout October, the company will donate a portion of hair colour fees – and customers’ optional $2 donations –  to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and Look Good Feel Better.

‘I love to experiment with my hair, I always remember the Olsen twins doing a soft pink and it looked fab, doing this is not only fun but for such a great cause,’ Roxy said.
