One fan may have just saved Australian Olympic swimmer Mack Horton‘s life. The 2016 gold medalist took to Instagram this morning to thank the anonymous source who had called the Australian swim team after noticing a suspicious mole on his chest. “Good call,” Horton wrote about the possible cancer scare. “Very good call.”

Horton had the mole removed in Melbourne on Thursday. Old photos from 2012 and this summer show how that particular mole had grown in size.
The Olympian isn’t the first famous person to receive critical medical advice from a fan. In 2013, a nurse who had been watching a marathon of HGTV’s Flip or Flop had contacted the show’s producers after noticing star Tarek El Moussa had a concerning lump on his throat.
El Moussa ended up being diagnosed with stage-2 thyroid cancer, but three years later, he remains in remission.
