Khloe Kardashian is opening up about a secret encounter she had with skin cancer nearly 10 years ago.

In a new blog post titled, “My Skin Cancer Scare”, the reality television star reveals, “I’m writing this post with the hope that my story can get some of you in to see your doctor if you notice something wrong with your skin.” She confesses, “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.”

“I had eight inches of skin removed,” Kardashian says. “It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time, the removals haven’t been that bad.” She goes on, “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!”

Ending her post, the fitness lover urges fans, “Check yourself frequently!”
