Poor Leah Messer. As if finding a lump in her breast wasn’t hard enough, the Teen Mom 2 star then had to deal with the possibility of surgery without any health insurance during the May 11 episode of the MTV series.

During a sit-down chat with her sister, Victoria, Leah revealed that during an ultrasound, her doctor found a tumor in her right breast. But even though they “didn’t seem to think it was cancerous”, it could still “grow” into something dangerous, Leah revealed. And surgery “scared the living s***” out of her.

“The last big surgery I had, they prescribed me prescription pain medication that I became addicted to. So any kind of open procedure literally scares the f*** out of me,” Leah told Victoria before revealing that she also doesn’t have medical insurance. Leah explained that she was either on her parents’ medical insurance or ex Jeremy Calvert‘s while they were married.

But since she’s no longer an anyone’s plan and now had this health scare, she knew there was no time like the present to go out and get coverage. So she did that — but unfortunately, because Leah’s tumor was a pre-existing condition, her new insurance won’t cover anything that comes from it. So let’s just hope, for her sake, that this non-cancerous tumor remains that way.
