The actress had a cancer mole which was removed after causing a lot of pain. In a recent post on her website, Khloe Kardashian talked about an incident in her life that happened many years ago. The reality star revealed that she had a serious skin cancer scare at that time.
Khloe said that the reason why she was sharing this story now was that she wanted others to have regular cleanups and checkups of their skins.
Most of the checkups remained harmless for the Kardashian girl, but there was one instance which became extremely frightening for her.
The author of ‘Strong Looks Better Nak*d’ had a mole on her back that was skin cancer and she had to remove quite a lot of skin – around eight inches, in order to get rid of it. The incident was very painful since the amount of skin removed was significant.
Khloe Kardashian also shared a picture online with the title ‘Know Your ABCDEs.’ The picture helps people check their skins for irregularities that may prove to be dangerous.
Khloe states that she had been through skin cancer scare and that had made her more aware of her own skin, her body, and the moles that might find their way on her.
Khloe wrote that her purpose was to share her own experience with the rest of the people so that if they see something that does not look fine, they should immediately take action in order to keep their health maintained.
Khloe had made it known earlier that she sparingly uses the sunscreen in order to provide safety to her skin against skin cancer. She further said that while she uses the sunscreen everywhere, her hands are the most sensitive part of the body.
Khloe said that she keeps sunscreen in all her cars lest she forget to fetch them during a trip. Whenever she is driving and she feels sun on her hands, she uses the sunscreen to protect herself.
Apparently, she is so scared because she had a cancer mole and it was removed after causing her a lot of pain and losing a large chunk of her skin.
The CDC reveals that skin cancer is the most common cancer in America. There are millions of cases of basal and squamous cell skin cancer cases diagnosed each year in the US.
