Khloe Kardashian’s Face Tumor: This is What You Must Know

Why did Khloe Kardashian need a biopsy for the tumor on her face?

After getting a second biopsy, Kardashian said that what the doctors were seeing “was incredibly rare for someone” her age. Mauricio, a Los Angeles-based dermatologist, noted that there is a spectrum of benign normal moles and most of the time, the naked eye can’t decipher if there’s an underlying issue.

“You have to be careful if there’s new growth,” she said, “because, sometimes, even a dermatologist can’t 100 percent tell. We have to take a biopsy and send it to the pathologist to make sure.”

In the fashion mogul’s case, she believed she simply had a blemish that wouldn’t budge. But as Mauricio pointed out, it would’ve healed long before seven months—when the reality TV star decided to get it checked out.

“A pimple should go away within a week or two and be totally gone,” Mauricio explained, “But if it’s a spot you’ve had looked at, they’ve done different treatments on it and it’s still there, that spot needs a biopsy.”
