Ex On The Beach star Helen Briggs has warned other parents to check their child’s birthmarks after her daughter had to have a birthmark removed
Helen Briggs has warned other parents to watch out for “growing” moles in their children after her daughter had to have a breast mole removed.
The 26-year-old mom, best known for starring in the fourth season of ‘Ex On The Beach,’ embraced it Instagram to show her daughter’s growing birthmark on her chest.
Helen explained that in early 2022 she noticed a change in the birthmark’s appearance and decided to consult a doctor.
Speaking to her 648,000 followers, Helen wrote: “Hey guys just wanted to stop by and explain a little bit about what Ocean has been up to at @greatormondst in London.
“Ocean was born with a birthmark on her chest which has never bothered her or us, but over the past six months a black dot has appeared which has grown larger and darker along with her birthmark (since birth her shape has really changed) .
“I took her to the doctors about this who were a little unsure what it was so they advised us to have it removed and have a biopsy done, so we’re in London today for a two-day visit. She was so brave and is recovering so well.”
Helen now advises other parents to have their child’s mole checked if they notice any unusual growth behavior.
She continued: “Just wanted to make parents aware that if you are ever in doubt please see a doctor and seek advice. Ocean is doing absolutely fine and is still her sassy, happy self.
“Just wanted to say thank you to all the nurses and doctors at Great Ormond Street, they were absolutely wonderful, so kind and helpful, I entrusted my daughter to them and they did not disappoint, so thank you 🌻.
“We’re still awaiting the results and will update you all when we know more.”
Many commenters have praised Helen for sharing her experience.
“Such an incredibly brave girl❤️,” said one.

A third added: “She looked like she was handling it all really well…I’m guessing more so than mum and dad…I hope it all works out and she stays the crazy funny hilarious sassy little lady she was.” is that we can see on stories ❤️❤️❤️”
