Khloe Kardashian Opens Up About Skin Cancer ScarePublished on August 17, 2016.
Khloe Kardashian is all about fun and games a lot of the time, but the reality star got serious with fans recently when she urged them to keep a close eye on their skin.
In a new post she put on her app, Khloe opened up about a personal incident where she found something on her skin that landed her in the doctor’s office, receiving some shocking news. “I have moles everywhere, and a couple years ago, I noticed one growing under my breast. I immediately looked it up online and found out that if a mole is growing and changing shape, you should go to the doctor…so I did,” she wrote. “They took the whole thing out and they biopsied it.”
Luckily for the 32-year-old, it came back benign, but her doctors were still not happy and decided to look into some of her other moles. “There was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer. I had 8 inches of skin removed. It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time, the removals haven’t been bad. Now that I’ve gone through this a couple of times, I am extra aware of my skin, body and moles.”
She then shared an important message with her fans. “I urge you to check yourself frequently! I haven’t had a problem in years, but wanted to share my experience with you so that if you notice something doesn’t look right, you will take action and take care of your health!”
