Real Housewives Of New York City Star Bethenny Frankel sat down with ‘PEOPLE’ this week to reveal her latest heath scare. “I had a growth on my face that was enlarging. I guessed it to be a basal cell carcinoma and had it lanced and removed. The doctor confirmed it is indeed basal cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer, and says while it is cancer, I am lucky to have it removed — so it won’t affect my overall health,” she shared.“I am now scheduled to undergo Mohs surgery to remove the cancer, followed immediately by plastic surgery to remove any scarring.”

Bethenny had the growth removed last month, she shared on social media at the time. Following the diagnosis, she calls it a “sharp reminder” to be vigilant about how you protect yourself from the sun. “I am extremely lucky to have caught it in time, and it just goes to show you have to know your body and be very aware of any changes. This was a sharp reminder why it is so important that I religiously wear large hats to cover my face and reapply sunscreen. Always make sure to rub in spray-on sunscreen on your kids — spraying it on by itself doesn’t cover them enough. Apply it thoroughly every two hours and check the expiration dates as sunscreen does expire; and sit in the shade whenever possible,” she said. “I love to swim in the ocean and go to the beach, but this is a reminder that the sun is not your friend.”
