KHLOE Kardashian has revealed a huge scar after suffering her second melanoma.
The reality star showed off the jagged mark in the trailer for the third season of the Hulu series The Kardashians, which premiered May 25.
She had previously suffered the same skin cancer when she was 19, which required surgery to remove it from her back.
But Khloe didn’t notice the newbie’s symptoms until seven months after she first spotted a small bump on her cheek, which she assumed was a pimple.
Melanoma can cause a variety of symptoms, many of which are unknown.
From crusted skin to patchy moles with a mix of colors, knowing what to look for can be life-saving.
The deadly disease affects 16,700 Britons annually, making it the fifth most common form of cancer in the country.
Experts say early detection is crucial for successful treatment, as surgery can stop the disease from progressing.
New spot on the skin
Not all melanomas look like a birthmark, some look like a new spot.
Experts warn that if a spot changes in size, shape, or color, it could be a sign of the disease.
Spots that look different than others on your skin — the “ugly duckling sign” — are another symptom, according to the American Cancer Society.
Mole with an uneven shape or edges
Noncancerous moles are usually circular in shape with rounded edges.
In contrast, melanomas are often asymmetrical, with jagged sides or one half larger than the other.
A bumpy-looking mole could be a sign of melanoma, which means it might be worth talking to a doctor about.
Melanomas are usually significantly larger than normal moles, which are usually small.
The cancerous growths can be up to 6 mm wide.
However, some may be smaller.
Mole with a mix of colors
Cancerous birthmarks are often a mixture of two or more colors.
They can be different shades of brown or even other tones depending on the color of their skin.
It’s important to check that your moles appear uniform in color to help identify melanoma.
Moles that change over time
Spotting changes in your birthmarks could also help catch skin cancer early, according to the NHS.
A mole that changes size, shape, or color can be a melanoma.
Swelling, bleeding, itching, or crusting could also indicate the disease, according to the health department.
