Deborah Hutton underwent surgery to remove two skin cancers from her face in May, and earlier this week she shared her terrifying experience.

In an interview with A Current Affair on Monday, the 58-year-old Australian media personality admitted she was “shocked” by the devastating diagnosis.

Deborah said she had a basal cell carcinoma removed from the exact same spot on her face nine years earlier, and to her surprise, she found it had returned.

Deborah called it a “deeper and bigger operation” than the operation she needed the first time, “she didn’t expect it.”

She admitted she was afraid that her face would be irrevocably drawn after a successful modeling career.

But she said she was “not self-conscious” about the scars knowing that the skin cancer could have killed her.
