Janice Dickinson Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis, But Insists: 'You Ain't Getting Rid Of Me Yet'

'Don't feel sorry for me, this is not a pity party,' says the star.

Janice Dickinson has revealed that she's been diagnosed with breast cancer.

The star, who famously calls herself the 'world's first supermodel', has told of how a lump in her breast was found during a routine examination earlier this month, with a mammogram and biopsy later confirming it to be cancer.

Janice has since been informed she has early stage ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), which is a common form of breast cancer that starts in the milk ducts.

However, the star - best known to UK fans for her stints on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' in 2007 and 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2015 - has refused to take the diagnosis lying down, and has insisted she will fight it.

Janice, who is mum to two grown-up children, also revealed that she will share her battle with the disease on US TV show 'The Doctors', which will follow her as she undergoes treatment.
