Clare Balding gets the all clear following cancer treatment

  • Racing presenter Clare Balding is looking forward to 2011 after being told she does not need any further cancer treatment.

    Clare’s doctors said earlier this week that, following a successful operation to remove a lymph node in November, no more treatment is required.

    “I had to have another little operation at the end of November — you’d never have known as I was back to work as soon as poss — to remove a lymph node,” she wrote on Twitter.

    “There was much discussion as to whether I would need further radioactive iodine or even radiotherapy but the good news is that I need no further treatment. Not taking too much for granted but very, very relieved and can sing into 2011 with glee.”

    Last year she was treated successful for thyroid cancer.

    Clare is currently presenting Famous and Fearless — where celebrities perform dangerous stunts — with Chris Evans on Channel 4.
