Danniella Westbrook says she has the 'all clear' after terrifying womb cancer battle

DANNIELLA Westbrook has revealed she got the "all clear" from doctors today after her terrifying womb cancer battle.

The 45-year-old star, who played Sam Mitchell in EastEnders for years, thanked her medical team and called life "a blessing" as she gave fans the good news.

She tweeted: "Today I feel so much gratitude.

"I got the all clear today and want to thank my doctor and all his team at Luton & Dunstable hospital for the amazing care they gave me."

Danniella added: "Life is a blessing for sure And wanted to thank you all for your love and support ❤️❤️" adding the hashtags: "#gratitude" and "#cancerFree".

The star also posted a similar message on Instagram, captioning it: "Happy happy happy and huge thanks for all your support ❤️❤️❤️💕💓💕💋 "

The star revealed last September that she was battling the disease, saying she was terrified she would die like her good friend Jade Goody, who passed away from cervical cancer in 2009.

She has continued to fight it from the rehab facility she was sent to by friend Jeremy Kyle, after admitting she world snort 11 bags of cocaine a day if she could afford to.

Daniella's family have a history of womb cancer, with her mum being diagnosed when the actress was just 15 years old.

What are the symptoms of womb cancer?

The most common symptom of womb cancer is abnormal bleeding from the vagina.

The bleeding may start as a light bleed with a watery discharge, which may get heavier over time, according to NHS Choices.

As most women who are diagnosed have been through the menopause, any vaginal bleeding will be unusual.

In women who haven't been through the menopause, periods may be heavier than usual or women may experience bleeding between periods.

Less common symptoms include:

  • pain in the lower abdomen
  • pain during sex
  • pain in the back
  • loss of appetite
  • tiredness
  • nausea

She begun started getting symptoms of the disease, the fourth most common cancer in women in the UK, two years ago.

She explained how she started to bleed so badly she would need to change her clothes six times a day and would have to shower constantly.

Danniella, who previously battled a £400-a-day addiction to cocaine, admitted she went on a drug fuelled binge to try and cope with the news of her diagnosis.Danniella Westbrook treats herself to Creams after womb cancer operation
