Was Piers Morgan saved from cancer by a viewer? The TV host insists that he was able to avoid a brush with cancer thanks to the view of an expert in melanoma, who spotted a suspicious mark on his chest during a documentary interview, Fox News reported.

Gillian Nuttall, who founded Melanoma U.K., spotted the mark during an appearance by Morgan in the ITV "Serial Killer" documentary.

"He was interviewing a serial killer, and I watched it. He had an open-neck shirt on and it caught my eye," said Nuttall, according to The Daily Mail. "I stopped the TV and looked closely. It really bothered me so as I'd got his email, just thought 'quick shove in the right direction won't harm.'"

Nuttall sent an email to Morgan that read, "Piers, at the risk of sounding like a lunatic, I'm just watching your programme and there's a blemish on your chest. Have you had it checked?"

Upon receiving the email Morgan immediately went to a dermatologist to get it checked out, and just as well because it turned out that the mark could have turned cancerous.

"This week, a top dermatologist took one look and immediately cut it out," said Morgan, per The Hill. "Much further delay, he informed me, and it might well have turned cancerous. Give that lady a gold star."

Morgan thanked Nuttall, noting the "irony of a serial killer inadvertently helping to save my life."

The incident highlights the importance of keeping check on skin blemishes and moles, as the Melanoma U.K. group stressed.

"Just goes to show how important it is to check our skin," the organization posted to Twitter, urging the public to "always be aware of changes to any blemishes."
