Khloe Kardashian has revealed she had a skin cancer scare.
The reality star took to her website on Tuesday and opened up about getting eight inches of skin removed from her body after finding out she had skin cancer.
Kardashian was more than candid in the blog post, titled “My Skin Cancer Scare,” detailing the life-changing experience that many were unaware of. “I’ve gone through this process a couple of times and I am so grateful that most moles have not been cancerous,” she wrote. “However, there was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer. I had 8 inches of skin removed.”
Khloe continued, “It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time, the removals haven’t been that bad.”
“They took the whole thing out and they biopsied it. Thankfully, it was benign. I’ve gone through this process a couple of times and I am so grateful that most moles have not been cancerous.
“Now that I’ve gone through this a couple of times, I am extra aware of my skin, body and moles.”
And the 32-year-old beauty wants to encourage others to be vigilant and getting any suspicious moles checked out.
She said: “I’m writing this post with the hope that my story can get some of you in to see your doctor if you notice something wrong with your skin.
Per the reality star, she hasn’t had a problem “in years.”
