"A lot of fans have asked [me], 'Do you have cancer?' I don't know," the 35-year-old mother of four tells ET's Brooke Anderson. "I maybe do. I don't know. We're going to run tests."

Mama June was alarmed by possible symptoms, including that she "pretty much sleeps all the time" and that "every bone in [her] body hurts."

She says that she plans to get checked out by a doctor, but has been holding off because she wants to put her children first.

The Department of Children and Family Services is also concerned about the welfare of Mama June's girls, as the authorities are investigating the family to be sure that the children are safe. After interviewing her three youngest girls (Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, 9, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, 14, and Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon, 18), authorities determined that they were not physically or emotionally harmed by Mama June reuniting with her ex, convicted child molester Mark McDaniel.

The former reality star admitted that she saw McDaniel twice since his release from jail and that she did it for two reasons: closure for her daughter Pumpkin, who at one time believed that McDaniel might be her father, and because she felt sorry for McDaniel after learning of his leukemia diagnosis.

TLC canceled Here Comes Honey Boo Boo after the release of pictures showing Mama June and McDaniel house hunting side by side. A photo also surfaced on TMZ showing Mama June in bed with McDaniel, but Mama June claimed that the picture is fraudulent.

"I had a company analyze that one and it's been photo shopped," said Mama June.

TMZ has denied doctoring the photo.

Mama June assured Brooke that the two were looking for a home for Mama June and not looking for a place to move into together.

Mama June also insisted that she is not and will not be seeing McDaniel, but her mother Sandra Hale told us earlier this month that she thinks Honey Boo Boo could be in danger.

"The reason I say that is because that's about the same age he likes," Hale said. "[The same age] he messed with Anna."

Mama June's eldest daughter Anna "Chickadee" Cardwell, 20, filed charges with the help of her grandmother against McDaniel when she was 8-years-old after he molested her.
