Sometimes it can be easy to forget that celebrities go through the same life experiences as everyone else — and that includes things like health scares and medical struggles. But, forever keeping it honest and real, Khloe Kardashian wrote about a recent skin cancer scare on on her app and website.
After noticing a suspicious mole under her breast (and after having had to have moles removed in the past), Khloe went to the doctor for a mole check. And while most of her moles were benign, one on her back 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.” Now that I’ve gone through this a couple of times, I am extra aware of my skin, body, and moles.”
This is an important reminder for women everywhere to be aware of their bodies, and most importantly, to never avoid getting something that looks unusual or abnormal checked out. Plus, major kudos to Khloe for bringing up this important, yet definitely unglamorous topic. She just may save some lives!
Khloe also stressed the fact that taking care of ourselves and our bodies is on us, and it’s important to “take action and take care of your health.
Amen to that, Khloe. And as always, thanks for keeping it real with us.
