Khloé Kardashian has urged fans to get checked for skin abnormalities following a skin cancer scare of her own.

The 32-year-old reality TV star took to her app and website to talk about her experience, saying, ‘There was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer. I had eight inches of skin removed. It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time, the removals haven’t been that bad.’


She also outlined the removal of what she thought could have been a cancerous mole underneath her breast.

‘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.

‘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. 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!’
