Shirley Ballas gives health update as she requires urgent scans on ALL of her organs
Shirley Ballas, 61, has revealed that doctors have flagged their concern about the Strictly judge’s high hormone levels, requiring urgent scans. Earlier this month, Shirley revealed to her Instagram followers that doctors were initially searching for a suspected lump.
Talking to the Mail on Sunday, Shirley said: “She said I have the highest testosterone levels she’s ever seen in a woman, and testosterone can wreak havoc on the female organs.
“So she’s requested an urgent scan of all of my organs at King’s College, London.
The optimistic star reassured her fans that she would be able to let everyone know what is going on once the scans are complete.
The Strictly judge added: “She [the doctor] won’t speculate on what the cause is.

However, most recently, she got a growth on her shoulder checked out,which wasn’t benign, but requires a removal.
Despite this Shirley said she is trying “to make light” of her health situation and noted how “wonderful it is to be cared about by the public”.
Shirley has been the head judge on Strictly Come Dancing since Len Goodman announced his departure in 2017.
She made her first appearance on the panel four months later – at the launch show of series 15 September 9 that year.
Shirley’s fellow judges include Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel-Horwood and Anton Du Beke.
She specialises in the International Latin division, where she won several championship titles which earned her the nickname The Queen of Latin.
Shirley stopped competing in dance competitions in 1996, becoming a dance coach and judge for ballroom and Latin American competitions.
The head Strictly judge has also appeared on Dancing with the Stars, giving masterclasses and commentating on the show.
