Skin cancer is no joke. The importance of staying on top of your health is something Khloe Kardashian knows about firsthand.
In a new post shared on her app and website, Khloe spoke out about a few scary experiences of her own.
"I have moles everywhere, and a couple years ago, I noticed one growing under my breast," Khloe shared. "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."
It turned out to be benign, but on another occasion, Khloe's fears turned out to be warranted.
"There was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer. I had 8 inches of skin removed," Khloe explained. "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."
"I urge you to check yourself frequently," she continued. "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."
