24 Dec – Charlene Choi recently clarified the reason for her slightly swollen face that was misunderstood by netizens earlier to be a sign of pregnancy.
As reported on Mingpao, the actress, who spoke to the media at the Macau Movie Festival, shared that she originally thought that she has gained a lot of weight in her face upon realising that her chin was swollen.
"A doctor friend of mine examined it for me and said that it was not a double chin and suggested that I went for an MRI immediately," she said.
The result later revealed that Charlene had a lymphatic cyst, though fortunately it was not malignant.
"I learned that lymphatic cyst is related to weak immunity. But luckily it didn't hurt and didn't affect my daily routine. The swelling will reduce as long as I take my medicine regularly," she said.
Aside from western medicine, the actress stated that she has also been looking towards Chinese medicine to help regulate her body and immune system - including a routine trip to an acupuncturist and cupping specialist.
