Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian recently revealed that what she thought was a zit on her face turned out to be melanoma, a type of skin cancer. Kardashian, 38, shared her experience on the latest episode of The Kardashians, a Hulu series that follows the high-profile members of the celebrity Kardashian-Jenner family.

She had a surgery on her face.

Kardashian decided to have a biopsy on the bump on her face, despite thinking it was a “zit.” “It’s melanoma and for my age, it’s incredibly rare,” she said.

“Melanoma is deadly,” Khloé shared in a trailer for the show. “This is way more serious than I anticipated it to be.”

She shares promising updates.

Following her surgery, Khloé Kardashian took to social media to address the concerns of her worried fans, acknowledging that she was currently in the “healing process.”

In a candid post, she provided a heads-up to her followers, stating, “You’ll continue to see my bandages, and when I’m allowed, you’ll probably see a scar (and an indentation in my cheek from the tumor being removed).”

In a lighthearted moment, Kardashian added a touch of humor, writing, “I hope you enjoy how fabulous I’m making these face bandages look.” Her willingness to share her experience with her followers in an open and honest manner is a testament to her bravery and serves as a reminder of the importance of prioritizing one’s health and well-being.

She remains cautious and covers the scar as a preventative measure.

In a recent social media post, the mother of two shared a selfie taken at her home gym, which led to inquiries from concerned fans about the skin-colored band-aid visible on her jawline.

In response, she candidly revealed that she had undergone a procedure to remove a tumor from her face. Clarifying the purpose of the band-aid, she explained, “I wear this for healing and the prevention of my scar getting worse.” Providing reassurance to her followers, she added, “All is great and healing wonderfully.”

This is not her first skin scare.

In a recent revelation, Khloé Kardashian disclosed that she underwent a procedure to remove a melanoma from her back at the age of 19. Expressing gratitude for the early detection, Kardashian shared, “I was lucky, and all I have is a scar to tell a story with. Most people aren’t as lucky as me, and I am forever thankful and grateful.”

She urges followers to prioritize skin health.

Despite not being genetically predisposed to skin cancer, Kardashian emphasized the importance of regular self-examinations for everyone, stating, “Be checking all the time.”

This serves as a reminder that skin cancer can affect anyone, and early detection through vigilant monitoring can make all the difference in successful treatment.

Khloé Kardashian’s mission to raise awareness about skin cancer is making a difference, and other celebrities are taking notice. In a revealing interview, Zac Efron shares his own health scare and sets the record straight on plastic surgery rumors.
