Khloe Kardashian took to her social media to reveal a skin cancer scare that happened to her and she needed to have immediate surgery.
Khloe got candid about the health issue Tuesday on social media, saying she went to the doctor for a biopsy after noticing a small bump on her face that remained there for 7 months.
She said that a dermatologist examined her face, and then she had two biopsies resulting in doctors telling her she needed an immediate operation to remove a tumor from her face.
The first biopsy revealed melanoma, and docs couldn’t believe the results, so a second biopsy was performed.
After the tumor was removed, the doctors took it to the lab to test it and it revealed a precancerous melanoma.
Khloe said that Beverly Hills surgeon Dr. Garth Fisher performed the operation, and she says everything appears fine now and she’s healing.
In an appreciation post, the reality star applauded Garyh. She wrote:
“Thank you to my amazing doctors!! Garth, I am so beyond grateful for you! I know how deeply you didn’t want to cut into my face, but you did it to protect me.”
“I trust you with everything and I’m so grateful we cut this early. I was lucky and all I have is a scar to tell a story with. Most people aren’t as lucky as me and I’m forever grateful and thankful.”
If Khloe didn’t get her face checked out, the tumor could’ve turned into full-blown cancer, though it’s impossible to predict when that would have happened.
Khloe Kardashian says she had melanoma surgically removed from her back when she was 19 and now she’s probably going to have a scar on her face when she is able to take off her face bandages.
