Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge has revealed she is batting skin cancer.
The 49-year-old housewife took to Instagram to announce she has been diagnosed with melanoma. In the photo, she reveals her bottom with large freckle, saying it led to the diagnosis from her doctor.
“Im showing you this picture because this is what melanoma looks like,” she wrote in the caption. “I don’t want sympathy, I want you to save YOUR ass and get your skin checked . This was just a small black flat freckle…. I had no idea!”
Judge went on to say she will fully recover from the cancer because she and her doctor caught it early. According to People Magazine, the star had basil cell skin cancer freckles removed previously.
