    Khloé Kardashian Explained Why She's Still Wearing A Band-Aid Months After Having Her Facial Tumor Removed

    Khloé Kardashian had a precancerous melanoma tumor removed from her face earlier this year.

    It's been quite a few months since Khloé Kardashian had a facial tumor removed — but she's still wearing a Band-Aid on her face.

    Earlier this year, Khloé shared that she underwent a procedure to remove a small bump on her cheek that turned out to be a precancerous melanoma tumor.

    But despite the procedure happening several months ago, some fans are wondering why Khloé is still wearing a Band-Aid on her face.

    In fact, Khloé stepped out at the CFDA Fashion Awards this week still sporting one on her cheek — although it was almost invisible.

    It turns out that Khloé is wearing it to help prevent the scar from expanding — and she could be wearing the Band-Aid for months to come.

    "Trust me it’s not easy lol but it will help my scar not stretch out any bigger than it has to be," Khloé wrote on Twitter, adding that the scar is healing "wonderfully."

    @lizpkardash Trust me it’s not easy lol but it will help my scar not stretch out any bigger than it has to be. right now it’s healing so wonderfully. I do laser treatments on it and it’s healing so so well. They want me to wear it for six months but I’m not sure I will go that long.
