Khloe Kardashian announced on her Instagram story on Tuesday that she had an operation to remove a tumour from her face. Regarding a bandage she had been sporting on her face for the previous few weeks, Kardashian talked openly about her treatment for skin cancer.
After being diagnosed with Melanoma, the most deadly type of skin cancer, she uploaded a video to Snapchat detailing the event. She confessed on Snapchat, “My back made me very uneasy.” “I have a Dalmatian appearance.
The reality personality posted a picture of the bulge on her cheek and noted that at first, she thought it was a pimple. But after several months, it still persisted, so she made the decision to have it examined.
Seven months after finding it was not moving, Kardashian said, “I decided to get it biopsied.”
The co-founder of Good American continued by saying that she had the lump examined by numerous medical professionals, all of whom thought the tumour was “extremely rare for someone [her] age.” She was informed that she required immediate surgery to have the growth removed a few days after receiving a sample.
Over an image of her face covered in gauze, she commented, “All my margins appear clear and now we are onto the healing process.” You’ll still be able to see my bandages, and once I’m cleared, you’ll probably also be able to see a scar (as well as an indentation in my face where the tumour once was).

Lucky for me, all I have is a scar to tell my tale,” Kardashian added, adding, “I hope you love how amazing I’m making these facial bandages look.
After telling her tale, the “Kardashians” star spoke about her prior skin cancer experience and released a PSA advising people to regularly examine their skin for strange skin disorders.
At the age of 19, Kardashian revealed that she had melanoma on her back, which was also removed during surgery. “No one is exempt from these things—even me, who diligently wears sunscreen every day. Please take this seriously and perform regular self-examinations in addition to your yearly physicals.
