Roughead hopes to return to AFL soon

Hawthorn star Jarryd Roughead hopes to return to the AFL soon after having his life turned upside down by a skin cancer scare.

Roughead has spoken publicly for the first time since the removal of a melanoma from his lip last week.

He has a large scar on his lower lip, but Roughead says he is waiting on the result of one more test before he hopefully receives the all-clear.
