Khloé Kardashian Reveals Skin Cancer Diagnosis
Khloé Kardashian just dropped a bombshell on us all: She was previously diagnosed with skin cancer.
In a new post shared on her app, the 32-year-old revealed that the doctors once found a cancerous mole on her back. Though she since got it removed, Kardashian shared that the diagnosis definitely made her realize the importance of protecting your skin from the sun.
“There was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer. I had 8 inches of skin removed,” she remembered. “It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time, the removals haven’t been that bad.”
According to Kardashian, she also had to get tests done after finding a mole that had started growing under her breast. Luckily for her, the results came back negative.
“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. They took the whole thing out and they biopsied it,” she recalled. “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,” she added. “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!”
