Thanks to the wonders of reality TV and social media, there’s almost nothing we don’t know about the Kardashians.
Every move, every relationship and every selfie is documented for the entire world to see.
But Khloe Kardashian surprised us all today, when she revealed she had a serious cancer scare, resulting in surgery.
Writing on her personal website, Khloe said she wanted to talk to her fans about something “more serious” than usual. “I have moles everywhere, and a couple of years ago, I noticed one growing under my breast…[The doctor] took the whole thing out and they biopsied it,” she wrote. (Post continues after gallery.)
“Thankfully, it was benign. I’ve gone through this process a couple of times and I am so grateful that most moles have not been cancerous. However, there was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer.”
The 32-year-old revealed she had eight inches of skin removed as part of the treatment process.

“It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin. Now that I’ve gone through this…I am extra aware of my skin, body and moles,” she continued.
The reality star said she wanted to share her story to encourage her fans to check frequently for any changes on their skin.
“If you notice something doesn’t look right..take action and take care of your health!”
