Miss universe 1993 Dayanara Torres has revealed on Tuesday that she was diagnosed with skin cancer and she is currently waiting which treatment she will be receiving.

In her lengthy post on Instagram, the Puerto Rican beauty queen and actress started off by saying, 
"As mothers we are always taking care of everyone around us... our kids, family, friends & often we forget to take care of ourselves."

"Today I have some sad news... I have been diagnosed with skin cancer 'melanoma' from a big spot/mole I never paid attention to, even though it was new, it had been growing for years and had an uneven surface," she said.

The actress said that it was her fiance Louis D’Esposito who convinced her to have it checked and even made the doctor’s appointment himself.

 “After a biopsy & a second surgery last Tuesday the results unfortunately are positive.” Dayanara said

“Now we are waiting to see which treatment I will be receiving but they have already removed a big area from the back of my knee & also they have removed 2 lymph nodes at the top of my leg where it had already spread. Hoping it has not spread to any more areas or organs.” She added

Despite the sad news, Dayanara said that she’s “put everything in God's hands & I know he has all control”.

She said that her sons knew that they have a “warrior” of a mother.

The beauty queen said that she’s sharing the experience to also help others and urge them to “PLEASE, never forget to take care of yourself.”

“ If you see something or feel something different in your body have it checked... I had no idea skin cancer could spread anywhere else in your body. “ Dayanara added
