The ex-journalist removes her shirt for the cameras before having her breasts examined and scanned for all to see in a video titled ‘Lets Talk About Breasts’.

“I am on a mission to empower as many women as I can to take action to get to know their breasts and cancer risk,” she says in the video.

“I did it because it was important, I’ve got to the age where I don’t give a damn what people think of me, whatever is the most effective way to get the message across I’ll do it,” she added.

“Sharing my experience and talking to other women was a privilege but also an eye opener.”

“I took the bold move to have my 3D mammogram filmed knowing something might be found, but I thought, if there is something ominous lurking then I want to get it early. Thankfully it was clear.

The former Sky News Presenter reveals she is at higher risk of developing cancer therefore planning to undergo a test for the genes that are linked to pancreatic cancer.

Tracey caused controversy in the media dating back to 2008, igniting a public debate over euthanasia being made legal in Australia after she came close to euthanising her terminally ill mother.

Almost two-in-three women know someone diagnosed with breast cancer, a mere 23 percent admit to undertaking adequate self-detection steps, and just under half with an immediate family member diagnosed is unaware of their heightened risk.
