Mama June Shannon sparked concern after revealing that she had discovered two ‘lumps’, and is having difficulty breathing.
The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star has had a tough few months, after the death of her daughter, Anna ‘Chickadee’ Cardwell in December, at the age of 29.
‘I want to know what is going on with my chest, because I can’t breathe, there is a lump in my back. There is a lump in the top part of my chest,’ she told viewers, explaining that she would be undergoing a mammogram.
‘That’s what scares me, it’s on the same side as my heart, I don’t have heart issues, I had an EKG and a heart scan done.
‘I don’t know what’s going on, I don’t know if it’s something to do with the implant on that side, I don’t know if it has something to do with the lymphedema that I have on that side.’

Shannon, whose weight loss journey has been well-documented over the years, explained that she had been suffering for some time, but put her issues aside to take care of her daughter throughout her cancer battles.
‘It is affecting my everyday life. It was affecting my life even when Anna was alive. I put myself aside,’ she continued. ‘When my health issues really started getting bad with this, Anna was still alive and Anna would tell me to go get tested.
‘I was so wrapped in taking care of Anna, and spending time with Anna that I had, that I put myself to the side.
‘It’s just got worse and now it’s got to the point where it’s an everyday… walking through Walmart, it does get me out of breath. I’ve been 250lbs for over three years.

‘Me talking to you now, having to breathe is hard. I don’t know what that is.’
Fans shared the recording from the live session on Reddit, and voiced their worries for the matriarch in the comments below.
‘She needs to take care of her health issues asap,’ one begged.
Another agreed: ‘I hope she’s actually going to go to a doctor and I really hope she’s going to get a mammogram.’

Shannon has had a rollercoaster 12 months, after her daughter was diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal carcinoma last January.
The news of Cardwell’s condition broke in March as fans and family members rallied around the mom-of-two.
Sadly, she lost her life in December, with her loved ones hosting a memorial service shortly after.
In the wake of her death, it was claimed that Cardwell had been documenting her last days for an upcoming season of Shannon’s reality series.

Insiders close to the family told the outlet that she had been open about her condition, and wanted those scenes to be included on the new episodes of Mama June: From Not to Hot, in a bid to give fans an idea of what she went through.
They insisted that Cardwell had no issues with her journey being captured on camera, and the crew left her side just hours before her death.
It is not clear when the episodes will air.
