Khloe Kardashian 'totally okay' after removing tumour from her face

Khloe Kardashian has shared a health update after having a tumor removed from her face.

In recent months, the Kardashians star has been seen with a bandage on her cheek, with many asking if she was okay.

Last October, she posted a string of messages on social media, explaining that she underwent an immediate operation to get a tumor removed after noticing a ‘zit’ on her face that didn’t budge.

Taking to Instagram over the weekend, the 38-year-old posted a selfie for fans, in which the plaster could be seen near her jaw.

One follower took the opportunity to ask: ‘And what the heck is on your cheek.’

To which the mom-of-two replied: ‘A bandage. I had a tumor removed from my face but I’m totally ok. Thank you for asking.’

Khloe previously spoke out over her health issues, revealing how grateful she was that the tumor had been caught and dealt with very early.

Alongside a close-up picture of her cheek, the Good American boss told fans: ‘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.’

The ‘bump’ was checked out by two doctors, before she was informed that she would have to go under the knife to remove it.

‘A few days later I was told I need to have an immediate operation to remove a tumor from my face,’ she continued, sharing that Dr Garth 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 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.’

Khloe concluded the posts by encouraging others to get themselves checked out, adding: ‘I am so grateful we caught this early. I am lucky and all I have is a scar to tell a story with.’

‘Most people aren’t as lucky as me and I am forever thankful and grateful.’

In a later update, she insisted that she was ‘super grateful’ that she is healthy, and now has a ‘lifetime supply of bandaids’.
