My Tumour Made Me Trendy - a Newsbeat documentary

Fashion influencer Arooj Aftab's style is baggy fashion.

She's thriving in an industry where looks are key, but she's hiding something under her clothes.

The 22-year-old blogger has neurofibromatosis (NF) type 1 - a condition which causes tumours to grow along her nerves.

For the first time, she reveals her condition on camera and meets someone who has NF but can't keep it covered.
