Khloe Kardashian had skin cancer on her back and underwent surgery to get moles and eight inches of skin removed.
Khloe made the shocking health revelation on her subscription app, where she urged fans to become aware of the symptoms of skin cancer and get their moles checked out.
“There was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer,” said Kardashian. “I had 8 inches of skin removed.”
Khloe continued: “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 learned of the skin cancer on her back after getting a biopsy for one that was under her breast.
While that turned out to be benign, skin cancer was found on her back.
“I have moles everywhere, and a couple years ago, I noticed one growing under my breast,” said Kardashian.
“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.”
In early August, Khloe denied she was suffering from anorexia amid talk that she had lost too much weight and gotten too skinny, as TheImproper has reported.
The 5-foot-10 Khloe, who was once teased for being too fat and was called “Sasquatch” and “Big Foot,” said she gets criticized whenever she gains or loses weight.
“First I’m too fat and now I’m too skinny,” tweeted Kardashian, who recently lost 40 pounds.
“Never would I have ever thought I would be in the media for being ‘too skinny.’”
Khloe, who had low self-esteem growing up surrounded by her sexy, petite sisters Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, is proud of her 40-pound weight loss.
Kardashian’s weight loss secrets were a dairy-free diet, cardio exercise, waist training, calisthenics and weightlifting, Celebrity Health Fitness reported.
“The gym takes all the anxiety away when I’m overwhelmed or stressed out,” said Kardashian. “If I don’t have time to go to a class, I use the treadmill I have at home. It clears my mind of all the crap and puts me in a really good mood.”
Khloe is now addicted to the endorphin rush she gets from exercise, and said the weight loss was just an added bonus.
