Khloe Kardashian is speaking out about a recent cancer scare in order to influence her fans and followers to get checked.
The 32-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians starlet recently revealed in a recent post on her app and website that she had a very painful experience with a cancerous mole that she had to have removed.
“I have moles everywhere, and a couple years ago, I noticed one growing under my breast,” she wrote. “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.”
While the mole ended up being benign, Kardashian says doctors found a different mole on her back that was actually cancerous.
“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,” she said.
