Khloe Kardashian talks about her 'painful' skin cancer scare

Khloe Kardashian has a message for her fans and its serious: You have to keep an eye on your skin.

In a new post on her app, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star opened up about the time when she discovered something different about her skin. Khloe reveals that decided to visit the doctor's office where she received some unexpected news.

"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," she says. "They took the whole thing out and they biopsied it."

When the results came her scare fortunately turned out to be benign. But there was another situation, where professionals became concerned and decided to take action.

"There was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer. I had 8 inches of skin removed," Khloe revealed. "It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time, the removals haven't been that bad. Now that I've gone through this a couple of times, I am extra aware of my skin, body and moles."

Khloe now herself takes precautions with her skin and urges fans to stay mindful too. And when there's a doubt, check it out with a doctor.

"I urge you to check yourself frequently!" Khloe shared. "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!"
