Australian Swimmer Susie Maroney Diagnosed with Skin Cancer

Swimming champion Susie Maroney revealed that she is battling skin cancer after discovering a melanoma on her back.

The 41-year-old mother-of-three said that she became concerned about a mole on her back and visited a general physician who then referred her to a skin specialist three weeks ago.

She underwent surgery, and a biopsy confirmed the presence of a nodular malignant melanoma.

Maroney is scheduled to undergo another surgery at Sydney's Kareena Private Hospital. A nine-centimeter long incision is required to remove the malignant melanoma.

"Hopefully, they will get all the melanoma out. If they don't, I will have to have further take tests and scans to see if it has spread anywhere else in my body," said Maroney.

Maroney is the primary carer of her children Paris(7), Capri (5), and River (3). Maroney's partner is former rugby player Perry Cross.

"They're so young, and they need me. I was crying when I heard those words because this is something you can die from," she said.
