Pro golfer and social media personality Paige Spiranac is an open book who is known for being honest and forthcoming with her massive social media following.
Spiranac opened up to her millions of followers about a recent health scare and used her platform to issue an important reminder at the same time.
The 29-year-old Colorado-born golfer, who has been featured in magazines like Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition and Golf Digest, worried she may have had breast cancer after a doctor discovered a lump in her breast.
“Sorry for not being as active lately on social media. I went on vacation then had to deal with my health,” the famed golf influencer wrote on her Instagram story. “During an annual check up, they found a lump in my breast. I recently had to get a biopsy done. It came back negative which I’m so grateful for!”
Now, Spiranac is urging others to get checked whenever they feel something abnormal.
She continued with her “little life update,” urging her followers to not only get regular breast exams but also reminded her fans that “you never know what people are going through behind closed doors so extending kindness is so important.”
She ended her Instagram story with a message of gratitude to all her followers and friends. She wrote: “I want to thank you, guys, for always sending so much love and support my way.”
Breast cancer is the second most common cancer found in women in the U.S., but also impacts men. On an annual basis, it is diagnosed in approximately 264,000 women and 2,400 men.
She was recently placed fifth among the most searched golfers, topped by Tiger Woods. Paige Spiranac was also named Maxim’s Sexiest Woman in the world for 2022. She collaborated with Maxim for a T-shirt with her photograph on it, which fans can buy through her website.
Paige Spiranac is one of the most famous golf personalities. Since retiring from the sport, Spiranac has gone the influencer’s way and has more than 3.7 million Instagram followers, and even top PGA stars like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy do not have that many followers.
