The Scary Details Behind a Kardashian-Jenner Sister’s Short-Term Cancer Battle

By  | 

Even if you’ve never watched Keeping Up with the Kardashians, you are still, most likely, heavily involved in the lives of the Kardashian-Jenner family — whether you like it or not. Between all of their posts on Instagram, Twitter & Snapchat and the incredible amount of headlines the girls make, it’s hard to NOT be in the know. That’s why it came as a complete shock when one of Kris Jenner‘s five daughters revealed that she had cancer years ago and managed to keep it a secret… until now.

On her app, middle daughter Khloe Kardashian confessed that she had a scare with the disease a while back. “I have moles everywhere, and a couple years ago, I noticed one growing under my breast. 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,” she explained. “They took the whole thing out and they biopsied it.”

In that particular case, the results concluded that those specific skin lesions were benign. Another time, though, she wasn’t as lucky. “There was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer. I had 8 inches of skin removed,” Khloe revealed. “It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin.”

She continued, “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.”

The 32-year-old is using her story to persuade others to do what she did: see a doctor. “I urge you to check yourself frequently!” she exclaimed. “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!”
Maybe if these celebrities knew the hardships the Kardashian family had to go through, then they wouldn’t have publicly dissed the girls:
