If you haven’t booked your annual skin screening yet, Khloé Kardashian is here to remind you why it’s important you get on it immediately.

In a post on her app and website, the reality TV star opened up about her experience with getting multiple moles removed and why it’s essential to know what’s abnormal with your body so you can get it taken care of as soon as possible.

“I have moles everywhere, and, a couple years ago, I noticed one growing under my breast,” she wrote. “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.”

The doctors removed the mole and biopsied it, and it ended up being benign — but on another occasion, she wasn’t so lucky.

“There was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer,” she wrote. “I had eight 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. Now that I’ve gone through this a couple of times, I am extra aware of my skin, body, and moles.”

She then encouraged her fans to make sure to get checked “frequently,” because it’s essential to “take action and take care of your health.” Talk about an inspiring reminder to keep an eye on your moles!
