On Thursday, the former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star revealed on Instagram that she had a mole removed from her back that was potentially cancerous. Teddi, 40, shared that prior to the biopsy, she had been "avoiding" getting her yearly skin check for a "very long time," but went to the doctor after "RHOBH's" Kyle Richards saw her mole and was concerned.
Teddi posted a photo of herself wearing a bandage on her back, above, in addition to shots of her mole pre and post-removal.
"On my way to work which is why I am all glammed up. However, this is a reminder to please go get your yearly skin checks," she began in the caption. "I had been avoiding mine bc of my own anxiety for a very long time but when @kylerichards18 saw my back and it had changed colors again, she immediately took me to the doc who within minutes said it looks like melanoma and did a big removal."
"I am doing my best to stay present and positive as I head to 🎥 today," Teddi continued. "Grateful that I am busy to keep my mind from racing as I await the results."
She added, "I find strength in being honest with you all and hope this helps others. Please let this be a reminder to take action on your own skin. Give me a 💕 if you have recently gotten a check or are booking one today. *if you don't want to see it don't swipe."
"Love you friend. You got this ❤️ from one melanoma survivor to another 🙏," Tamra wrote, while Meghan said, "Oh my goodness Teddi I'm so glad you went in! Praying that it's negative. Glad you have an amazing (and intuitive) friend in @kylerichards18." Braunwyn added, "So important 🙏🙏 sending healing vibes."
Meanwhile, "RHOD" star Stephanie Hollman also chimed in, writing, "Surrounding you with love and prayers🙏."
