The Love Island star underwent surgery last month to remove a tumor from her thyroid gland, admitting she was “incredibly concerned” about it.
Speak with The sun, Demi said she’s been approached by young girls who have told her it’s nice to see someone in the public eye who isn’t afraid to show their scar.
She said: “I was incredibly anxious because I had never had surgery before, and although it sounds crazy, I was concerned about the scar on my neck.

“Now I’ve decided to actually own it because I’ve had some young girls message me who have had thyroid cancer and say it was nice to see someone with a scar.”
Demi has yet to undergo further treatment to destroy the remaining cancer cells.
It comes after Demi shared her ‘anger’ after six hospital appointments were postponed due to the Covid pandemic before she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
The TV star said “sobs” to her mother after a consultant explained to her that they should “cut” the golf ball-sized bump as “quickly as possible” after previously being told it was “completely clear.”
Demi said that if she had listened to the doctors, she might not have known she had cancer “in” her.
She added: “I felt scared and angry. I recently went out for coffee with a friend and said, “Why me? I don’t know anyone my age who has cancer.” But I’m lucky, my cancer is treatable.’

WHAT IS SHIELD CANCER?
Thyroid cancer is a rare cancer that affects the thyroid, a small gland at the base of the neck that produces hormones.
Women are two to three times more likely to develop it than men.
Symptoms of thyroid cancer may include:
- a painless lump or swelling in the front of the neck
- swollen glands in the neck
- unexplained hoarseness that doesn’t get better after a few weeks
- a sore throat that doesn’t get better
- Difficulty swallowing
About 9 in 10 people live five years after diagnosis. Many of these have been cured and will have a normal lifespan.
