Khloe Kardashian "didn't sleep" and lost "a lot of weight" during her terrifying cancer scare.
'The Kardashians' star underwent an operation to have a precancerous melanoma removed from her cheek last year and was left with a four-centimetre wound on her face - and she's now opened up about the testing time in a trailer for the latest season of the family's Hulu reality show insisting it was incredibly daunting.
Khloe, 38, said: "Melanoma is deadly. This was way more serious than I anticipated it to be."
The reality star's close friend Malika Haqq also spoke about how Khloe was coping - insisting she had never "seen her this low" - and Khloe's half-sister Kendall Jenner said: "She doesn't sleep, she lost a lot weight."
After the successful surgery, Khloe later explained she was keeping her bandage on to help minimise the scar and was undergoing laser treatment to help it fade.
In a post on Twitter, Khloe explained to her followers: "It’s healing so wonderfully. I do laser treatments on it and it’s healing so so well. They want me to wear it [the bandage] for six months but I’m not sure I will go that long. “It’s already been a couple months and I’m really proud that I’ve been this diligent with it."
Khloe previously explained that she decided to get checked out by a doctor after realising the lump on her face hadn't budged in seven months.
In a post on Instagram, she wrote: "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 realising it was not budging. "Dermatologist Dr Tess Mauricio (@drtessmauricio) examined it, and a second biopsy was ran by Dr. Daniel Behroozan (@drdanbehroozan) because what they were both seeing was incredibly rare for someone my age.
"A few days later I was told I need to have an immediate operation to remove a tumour from my face. I called none other than Dr. Garth Fischer, a dear friend of my families and one of the best surgeons in Beverly Hills who I knew would take incredible care of my face [sic]."
