Skin cancer (melanoma and others) is a very unpleasant, but still curable disease. She also did not pass some stars. Now they will have to protect their skin even more from the sun and have regular tests.
1. Tamra Judge
The Real Housewives of Orange County star posted on Instagram a photo of her left thigh in August 2017 with the caption: “I’m showing you this picture - this is what melanoma looks like. No need to sympathize, I just want you to take care of your asses and check your skin. There was a small black speck on this spot, and I didn't know where it came from."
After a surgical operation to remove the stain, she showed a photo of the stitches and assured everyone that she got rid of the melanoma.
2. Hugh Jackman
Khloe Kardashian and other stars who have lost a lot of weight during their careers
Chloe has long been a curvaceous woman. But after the birth of her daughter Tru, the model took up changing her figure and dropped 27 kilograms. Unlike many, she does not go on a diet and sometimes even allows herself her favorite "harmfulness".
While filming X-Men: Days of Future Past, Jackman noticed a drop of blood flowing from his nose. Thought I had accidentally scratched myself. But his wife insisted that he check his health. The diagnosis is “basal cell carcinoma”. Since then, he has undergone five courses of chemotherapy and is currently in remission.
In addition to fighting for their health, the famous Logan is involved in a PR campaign for sunscreens for children.
3. Whitney Carson
A few days after she learned that she had qualified for the American version of Dancing with the Stars, Whitney Carson received a response from a dermatologist regarding a mole on her leg. She was normal in size, but strawberry in color, and it turned out to be melanoma. After a successful operation, a scar remained on the leg, and Whitney hopes that new tests will not fall on her lot.
4. Melanie Griffith
The ex-wife of Antonio Banderas has fought skin cancer more than once. In 2000, she underwent surgery to remove melanoma, in 2017 - basalioma from the nose. She does not like to talk about it, so she can only get confirmation from doctors.
5. Khloe Kardashian
In August 2016, the star of the TV show "The Kardashian Family" told her story of the fight against melanoma: "I have moles everywhere, and a couple of years ago one of them began to grow under the breast."
The biopsy showed that the mole was benign, but after a thorough examination, the doctors found a melanoma on the back. “I had a large flap of skin removed, it was very painful, but usually a less serious operation can be done,” she said.
7. Kaitlyn Jenner
Chloe isn't the only contestant on the show to have skin cancer. Caitlyn Jenner posted a photo of her face without makeup, where a red line on the nose is visible: “I had the result of a sunburn removed. Be sure to wear sunscreen,”she wrote. Jenner's diagnosis is "basal cell carcinoma."
8. Bob Marley
Bob Marley was the one who opened the reggae style to the world. And those killed by melanoma. For the first time, cancer appeared in the form of a dark dot under the toenail. Doctors suggested amputating the finger, but Marley refused on religious grounds. The cancer had spread throughout his body, and the tragic death of Bob Marley was another reason to be reminded to check for any changes in his skin.
9. Sergey Rachmaninoff
The famous composer died in the United States of melanoma, unaware of his diagnosis to the last. The wife refused to tell him the news. Since it was much more difficult to treat melanoma at that time, doctors were unable to help him. Rachmaninov gave his last concert just a month and a half before his death, and did not stop writing music as long as he could move his fingers.
10. Harrison Ford
In 2012, he was diagnosed with a malignant tumor on his nose - basal cell carcinoma. The famous actor had to go under the surgeon's knife. Fortunately, the disease has never returned since then.
