Khloe Kardashian has decided to open up about a condition she has been suffering from for quite some time. The star talked about her battle with skin cancer. Khloe decided to open up with the purpose to help fans become more aware of this disease and seek help when they realize that something may be wrong with their health.
Khloe decided to open up about her “cancer scare” in a blog post on her website. The blog post, My Skin Cancer Scare, revealed that Khloe once had a cancerous mole on her back. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star said that because of this experience her mom has actually told her to get a test that would be able to determine if she carries the gene that would put her at increased risk of developing breast cancer.
Khloe revealed that she just refused because she does not want to know. “We’re all going to die. I don’t care,” the star claimed. When it comes to her experience with this cancer scare, Khloe revealed that she just noticed one day something strange on her skin. “I have moles everywhere, and 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,” Khloe said in her blog post. “Thankfully, it was benign.”
Khloe went on to say that luckily, the 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. It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time, the removals haven’t been that bad.” The reality show star revealed that she is now “extra aware of my skin, body and moles.” The star also claimed that she has not experienced any other skin problems since, but she wanted to share her experience to be make fans aware, as well.
