Just months after RHOC‘s Tamra Judge revealed a melanoma scare, RHOBH’s Camille Grammer announced that she’s at home recovering from her second cancer treatment in four years.
“Thank you Dr. Beth Karlan for removing those pesky cancer cells. You are amazing!” she captioned a photo of herself and her oncologist at LA’s Cedars-Sinai Hospital. “Ladies, listen to your bodies. If something doesn’t seem right, go for a checkup. Don’t put it off. Annual checkups are important.”
This was Grammer’s second time being treated for cancer — in this case, squamous cell carcinoma, a very common type of skin cancer — and she says she, thankfully, caught it early. “Early detection is key,” she wrote. “My cancer was removed and I’m resting at home.”
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, squamous cell carcinoma is the second most common form of skin cancer, usually caused by repeated sun exposure. If caught and removed early enough, the cancer is very treatable and is not likely to recur.
Grammer was previously diagnosed with endometrial cancer and underwent a hysterectomy in 2013. She has been in remission since 2015, and has since become an advocate for “below the belt” cancer awareness and a spokesperson for the Foundation for Women’s Cancer. We wish her all the best in her recovery!
