Khloe Kardashian is explaining the mysterious bandage on her face.

While many thought it might be more of a cosmetic procedure bandage, Khloe revealed it was much more serious and scarier than that.

Taking to her Instagram Story on Tuesday, October 11, the mother-of-two explained the reason for the face bandage.

Khloe started out by sharing a photo collage of her face with the bandage on it.

“I have seen numerous stories going around about the ever-evolving bandage on my face,” Khloe wrote.

Khloe explained that she noticed a small, raised bump on her face that she initially thought was as minor as a zit, but it was far worse.

“A few days later I was told I need to have an immediate operation to remove a tumor from my face.”

Khloe used this vulnerable moment for a better purpose.

“PS I am ONLY sharing this story with you so I can remind everyone to get checked, frequently.”
