Paul Mescal’s mum, Dearbhla, has given fans an update on her condition as she heads back to the hospital for a scan amid her cancer battle.

The mum-of-three is currently fighting multiple myeloma and is due for an MRI to get to the root of some unexplained pain.

Multiple myeloma is a type of bone marrow cancer that can affect several areas of the body, like the spine, skull, pelvis, and ribs, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Dearbhla has been documenting her illness on social media and given her followers good news following some blood tests.

She said: “So I’ve just finished in the hospital. I’ve to go for an MRI. Date to be confirmed, but that’s okay.

“Bloods done, all still really good numbers so very, very happy about that part and we’ll get to the root of the pain but it’s so wonderful to be cared for by this amazing team.”

Once home, she updated followers and said she was feeling “less anxious” over the pain she has been experiencing because she knows they’ll get to the bottom of it.

“I’m home and feeling less anxious. I know we will get to the root of it, which is really good,” she said.

“I’ve made my sandwich, I’ve lit the fire, I can see my roses and my birds and my tree and this is me.

“I’m now going to settle and I hope for all of you that need to be heard that you get heard, that would be my hope for us all – that our voices are heard and if your voice can’t be heard that there is somebody advocating for you to be heard.”

“I think that is really important,” she added.
