Khloe Kardashian opened up about her skin cancer scare on her website on August 16.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 32, revealed she had a cancerous mole removed from her back.
“There was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer. I had eight inches of skin removed,” she said. “It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time, the removals haven't been that bad.”
Kardashian also admitted she has also had past scares, which fortunately turned out to be benign.
“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,” she said.
“Now that I've gone through this a couple of times, I am extra aware of my skin, body and moles.”
The reality star encouraged others to get checked and be very attentive with their bodies.
“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.
“If you notice something doesn't look right, you will take action and take care of your health!”
