Tammy Hembrow started the video by revealing the extent of the melanoma removal from her leg. She recounted the recent procedure to remove skin cancer from her leg, saying, Okay, so I want to show you guys the chunk they had to take out of my leg because of the melanoma that I have. It was melanoma, which spreads very quickly and is very dangerous [and] can be very deadly if it spreads.”

I’m not diligent with sunscreen. I rarely wear sunscreen. I’m very silly. I just thought I am invincible, Tammy Hembrow confessed.

Just a few weeks later, Hembrow returned to social media and shared bikini photos basking in the sun. Her fans quickly noticed the bandage on her leg from the cancer removal surgery.

Her followers criticized her for posting sunbathing images, labeling her actions as “downright dumb.” A disappointed fan pointed out that such photos send the “wrong message” to Hembrow’s young followers, urging her to use her influence to promote life-saving behaviors rather than encouraging sun exposure.

Come on mate. Change your ways to influence and save lives rather than push people to sun-bake, they said.

One shocked follower exclaimed, OMG, You just had a melanoma removed and are sunbathing. Another Why are you sunbathing when you just had a cancer scare? Seems irresponsible and honestly downright dumb.”

In response to criticism, Tammy Hembrow defended her actions, stating, Was in the sun for 15 mins. Also, I am still very much going to go in the sun, to the beach, to the pool, or even if I just want to read a book for 15 minutes in the sun etc. Just always going to wear SPF and not be out in the hottest hours with no protection like I used to. People are silly if they think I can never go in the sun in a bikini again…”

The fitness influencer confessed to delaying multiple skin checks due to being “busy.” Upon finally visiting the doctor, a small freckle was diagnosed as melanoma. In her TikTok video, Tammy Hembrow cautioned, I’ve got about 30 stitches … And now I have to go back every three months for a full skin check to make sure that it isn’t coming back. Don’t be stupid like me and think you’re somehow invincible, because you’re not.”

According to the Melanoma Institute of Australia’s CEO Matthew Browne, melanoma is the most prevalent cancer among 20-39-year-olds. He underlined for Yahoo News, We need to ensure the younger demographic understands the seriousness of melanoma, the seriousness of a disease that can ultimately kill you.”

Dr. Shreya Andric, a dermatologist, stressed the significance of sun protection and skin checks. Surprisingly, patients are often taken aback when she examines their feet. She cautioned,  I like to remind my patients that Bob Marley died from a melanoma under the toenail of his big toe!”
