Chris Evans has shared a picture of his scar after having a cancerous growth removed, telling fans: “That’s a W.R.A.P.”
The Virgin Radio breakfast host revealed last month that he had been diagnosed with skin cancer in its early stages.
He has now had the growth removed, and took to social media to share the results.
Before the procedure, Evans uploaded a snap of the malignant melanoma on his leg to Instagram as he told his followers: “Time to dispatch this unwelcome guest.”
He later shared another picture of his leg post-op.
“And that’s a W.R.A.P,” wrote the radio and TV star.
“Early cuzza to celebrate + 0.0 VERY cold beer.”
“Peace & Love people,” Evans posted, adding the hashtag “#getyourselfchecked/checkafriend”.
The 57-year-old – who has five children - was inundated with support from fans after sharing his news, with many posting messages wishing him “a speedy recovery” and praising him for speaking out to raise awareness.
“Have a positive recovery & rest well,” said one person.
Another posted: “Hope you are OK! Amazing for you to use this platform to spread the word.
“You are just awesome in every way.”
“Such an inspiration, you inspire so many people - happy healing - enjoy your beautiful family,” said another fan.
“That’s a nice neat scar!” said someone else, adding: “I hope it heals well.”
Another wrote: “Good luck bonny lad you will smash this.”
Evans announced his diagnosis on his radio show in August, telling listeners that it was discovered after a masseuse found a mark on his shin.
He said that he felt very "lucky" as they caught his skin cancer “so early” that it was “as treatable as cancer can possibly be".
