FRESH from winning her breast cancer battle Sydney PR queen Roxy Jacenko has revealed her fears when doctors discovered a new lump just 12 months after her first diagnosis.

Last year Jacenko underwent surgery for breast cancer weeks after her husband Oliver Curtis was jailed for 12 months for insider trading.

She thought it had returned when doctors recently found a lump on her breast. But this time Curtis was with her as Jacenko steeled herself. Thankfully it was a false alarm.

"I was almost shocked when the doctor said good news," Jacenko said. "There isn't an appointment now (Curtis) lets me go to solo.

"There's no doubt he thinks about the fact he wasn't around when I was diagnosed in July of last year," Jacenko said.

Last week Jacenko signed with Toni & Guy and is helping raise funds for breast cancer charities.
