In a new post to her app/website on Tuesday, Khlo├â┬⌐ Kardashian created a PSA of sorts warning fans about the dangers of skin cancer — an experience she’s unfortunately been through, which led to her having to get EIGHT INCHES of skin removed due to a cancerous mole. Eek!
The 32-year-old reality star began:
“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.”
Miz Kardashian described her own “painful” experience with the disease:
“I’ve gone through this process a couple of times and I am so grateful that most 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 KUWTK star concluded:
“I urge you to check yourself frequently! 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!”
We respect Koko for using her platform to raise awareness about such an important and often-forgotten health concern!
Take care, y’all!!
