Khloe Kardashian has opened up about her close call with a skin cancer scare, in hope that it will encourage her fans to take care of themselves.

Khloe took to her website/app yesterday and posted an intense post about the dangers of skin cancer and how important it is to get checked and look after yourself.

Unfortunately for Khloe, it’s an experience a bit to close to home. She revealed that she had eight inches of skin removed due to a cancerous mole.

She wrote, "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."

"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 8 inches of skin removed. It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time, the removals haven't been that bad."

"I urge you to check yourself frequently! 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!"

We are so glad that Khloe used her own experience to help her fans and encourage them to get checked.
