Popular Telugu actress Hamsa Nandini has been diagnosed with Grade III Breast Cancer and she took to her official social media page to share the news with her followers and well-wishers. Hamsa Nandini, in a detailed post, recalled her first symptom of cancer and how she realised life was going to change. After she was diagnosed with cancer, her tumour was removed and the Doctors confirmed that there was no spread of cancer in her body. However, since she eventually tested positive for Hereditary Breast Cancer, she is said to have a 70% chance of getting another breast cancer.

Hamsa is currently in the process of medication to recover from Cancer and the actress has undergone 9 cycles of chemotherapy. 7 more cycles are left to complete the process. Hamsa mentioned that she is confident of fighting against the disease and also added that she will share her story to the world. She also assured that she is in the safe hands of an expert team of Doctors, requesting the fans not to be worried. Hamsa's heartfelt statement on being diagnosed with Breast Cancer reads, "No matter what life throws at me, no matter how unfair it may seem, I refuse to play the victim. I refuse to be ruled by fear, pessimism, and negativity. I refuse to quit.

With courage and love, I will push forward. 4 months ago, I felt a tiny lump in my breast. That very moment I knew that my life was never going to be the same. 18 years ago I had lost my mom to a dreadful disease and I had since lived under its dark shadow. I was scared. Within a couple of hours, I was at a mammography clinic getting the lump checked out. I was asked to immediately meet up with a surgical oncologist who suggested that I needed a biopsy. The biopsy confirmed all my fears and I was diagnosed with a Grade III Invasive Carcinoma (Breast Cancer).

After a plethora of scans and tests, I walked bravely into the Operation Theatre where my tumour was removed. At this point, the doctors confirmed that there was no spread and I was lucky to have caught it early. A silver lining. The relief was short-lived as I tested positive for BRCA1 (Hereditary Breast Cancer). This means that I have a genetic mutation that almost guarantees that I would have a 70% chance of another Breast Cancer and a 45% chance of Ovarian Cancer throughout my life. The only way to mitigate the risk is through some very extensive prophylactic surgeries which I need to undergo before I can claim Victory. Currently, I have already undergone 9 cycles of Chemotherapy with 7 more to go".
