Christie Brinkley’s Health Scare Revealed

Prayers Needed for Christie Brinkley's Health

Did you know that supermodel Christie Brinkley recently opened up about her health? Not many people were aware of what she had been going through. In a recent Instagram post, Brinkley shared the details of her diagnosis and how she discovered it while taking her daughter for a skin check-up.

During the appointment, Brinkley asked the doctor to take a look at a “tiny little dot” on her temple. The doctor immediately knew it needed a biopsy and confirmed that it was cancerous. Brinkley considered herself lucky to have caught it early.

In her Instagram post, Brinkley took the opportunity to remind her followers of the importance of using sunscreen. She shared, “The good news for you is that all of this can be avoided by being diligent with your sun protection!” Brinkley admitted that she had been lax with sunscreen use in the past but now plans to always wear SPF 30, long sleeves, and a wide brim hat.

She also emphasized the importance of regular check-ups and encouraged her fans to make an appointment as soon as possible. Brinkley’s own experience served as a cautionary tale for her followers.

Brinkley underwent a procedure to remove the cancerous cells after the diagnosis. She bravely shared before and after pictures, showing the incision on her temple where the cells were removed. Despite the ordeal, Brinkley expressed gratitude for catching the basal cell carcinoma early and having skilled doctors who took care of her.

Basal cell carcinoma, the most common type of skin cancer, is often caused by sun exposure. Celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Khloé Kardashian, and Andy Cohen have also dealt with this type of cancer in their lives.
