Khloe Kardashian Skin Cancer Battle Revealed
Khloe Kardashian is revealing her little-known battle with skin cancer. The reality star struggled with the disease nearly 10 years ago, but largely kept the medical issue private.
Now in a blog entry titled “My Skin Cancer Scare” on KhloeWithAK, Kardashian says, “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.” She confesses, “I’ve gone through this process a couple of times and I am so grateful that most moles have not been cancerous. However, there was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer.”
“I had 8 inches of skin removed,” Kardashian admitted. “It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time, the removals haven’t been that bad.” She assured fans, “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!”
Kardashian also urged, “Check yourself frequently!” Gossip Cop wholeheartedly agrees with that advice, and many other stars would, too. As Gossip Cop has reported, Hugh Jackman had his latest skin cancer scare in February, after which he once again advised followers to “use sunscreen.”
