Khloe Kardashian is “healing wonderfully” from the removal of a facial tumor. Over the weekend, Khloe, 38, updated fans about her health in the comments section of her latest Instagram post as she responded to a question from one of her 295 million followers.
“And what the heck is on your cheek,” a fan asked Kardashian about a skin-colored bandaid visible on her jawline in the post. The gym selfie of Kardashian sees her giving a kiss with the caption, “Happy Sunday.” She replied, “a bandage. I had a tumor removed from my face but I’m totally ok. Thank you for asking.”
When another follower also asked about the bandage, the Kardashians star added that the bandaid was actually “a scar strip.” She added, “I had a tumor removed from my face a few months ago so I wear this for healing and the prevention of my scar getting worse. All is great and healing wonderfully.”
The Good American founder first opened up about her skin cancer scare last October 2022. Per People, the mother of two first shared the news of her tumor in a series of posts on her Instagram Story featuring close-up photos of her skin.
“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 at the time. “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 realizing it was not budging.”
Kardashian added that she received two biopsies from separate doctors who both thought the bump was “incredibly rare” for someone her age. “A few days later I was told I need to have an immediate operation to remove a tumor from my face,” her post continued. “I’m grateful to share that Dr. Fischer was able to get everything — 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 indentation in my cheek from the tumor being removed) but until then I hope you enjoy how fabulous I’m making these face bandages look.”
