The gorgeous Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, Khloe Kardashian lately disclosed the the horrific fact that she had cancer scare, which is why she had to get 8 inches of skin removed from her body.
The star claimed that a mole on her back caused a doubt of skin cancer and she had to get it checked.
Khloe’s father, Robert, was also diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2003 and survived for just 2 months after his diagnosis. Therefore, having a past case in family, the mole compelled the star to undergo the examination. Khloe Kardashian revealed it to the public on her app as she wrote:
“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 emovals haven’t been that bad.”
“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. 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.”
Khloe went through this painful treatment a number of times in the past too but wondrously all of the scars turned out to be benign (non-cancerous).
The 32-year-old reality TV star seems to be brave and kind as she wants to send out this message to everyone to be watchful of such outgrowths and without a delay get them checked if any mole or scars hints of harm.
She said: “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!”
Probably the star has gained courage from the earlier incident that took place this year, where she was scared of having breast cancer and stayed in denial. She didn’t want to undergo the diagnosis but on her mother Kris Jenner’s continuous insistence, she got it checked.
After this the Keeping Up With the Kardashian‘s star told her mother to oversight the tests, Kris asked: “‘You don’t care if you could possibly get breast cancer?”
Khloe replied in anger: “We’re all going to die.”
To this, her mother didn’t stop convincing Khloe and argued: “Do you want to die when you’re 30 or do you want to die when you’re 85?”
Khloe said: “I don’t care, I don’t care.”
Kris Jenner, in this context, has always been supportive and bucked up her other daughters Kim and Kourtney as well whenever a health scare knocked them.
