Khloé Kardashian reveals she had a tumour removed from her face after second skin cancer scare

Khloé Kardashian has revealed she had a small tumour cut out of her face after discovering it could have been cancerous.

The reality star opened up about the experience in her Instagram Stories, explaining to fans why she had been spotted with a bandage on her face for some weeks.

“I have seen numerous stories going around about the ever-evolving bandage on my face, with some of you wondering why I’ve been wearing one for the past few weeks,” she wrote.

“After noticing a small bump on my face and assuming it was something as minor as a zit, I decided to get it biopsied 7 months after realising it was not budging,” she added on a new photo, which revealed the bump she had noticed on her cheek.

Kardashian explained that after getting the bump examined by two doctors, she was informed it was actually a tumour and was advised to get it removed as soon as possible.

She said the doctors thought it was a rare discovery to find in someone of her age – she’s 38.

The star also revealed this was her second serious skin cancer scare. The mum-of-two revealed she had a melanoma removed from her back when she was just 19.

“I’m grateful to share that Dr [Garth] Fischer was able to get everything,” Kardashian revealed.

“All my margins appear clear and now we are onto the healing process. So, here we are… you’ll continue to see my bandages and when I’m allowed, you’ll probably see a scar (and an indention in my cheek from the tumour being removed) but until then I hope you enjoy how fabulous I’m making these face bandages look.”

She followed the post with a video of her wearing one of the bandages while attending a show during Paris Fashion Week.

Kardashian ended her series with a warning to her fans to get their skin checked.

“PS I am ONLY sharing this story with you so I can remind everyone to get checked, and frequently,” she wrote.

“At 19 years old, I had [a] melanoma on my back, and I had surgery to remove that as well, so I am [predisposed] to melanomas.”

She went on: “Even those who are not, we should be checking all the time. I am someone who wears sunscreen every single day, religiously – so no one is exempt from these things. Please take this seriously and do regular self-exams as well as your annual check-ups.”
