Tv - Bruce Jenner Opens Up About Skin Cancer Battle

Olympian-turned-reality Tv star Bruce Jenner has thanked fans for their support as he battles skin cancer.

Kim Kardashian's stepfather has confirmed reports suggesting he is being treated for the disease, revealing he is suffering from a strain called basal cell carcinoma, and insists he feels grateful for all the kind messages he has received from his supporters.

Jenner, who underwent surgery to remove cancerous growths from his face this month (Sep13), tells Eonline.com, " I was diagnosed with... Basal cell carcinoma and have undergone Mohs surgery (chemosurgery) to remove it... I have been struggling with this for several years and appreciate all of the support and prayers while I continue to fight the battle against skin cancer... This has taught me to be extra vigilant when out in the sun and I encourage others to get regular check-ups and always wear sunscreen."

Jenner previously had growths removed from his cheek last year (12).
