WWE women’s superstar Alexa Bliss recently had another opponent that she had to make tap out – skin cancer.
The 31-year-old posted on her social media that she had been diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma recently and had to have it removed.
BLISS URGED FANS TO GET THEIR SKIN CHECKED
“Dear younger me, you should have stayed out of tanning beds. All clear now though – thank you @AmericanSkinInstitute for taking great care of me!” the former WWE Triple Crown Champion wrote.
After a fan brought the photo up online, Bliss assured that it seemed that everything is now alright. “Thank you! Don’t worry, short healing time. Always get your skin checked! Esp if you are in the sun or use tanning beds! Lol,” Bliss said.
Bliss also took time to answer fan questions about how she found out about the skin cancer diagnosis, and used it to try and educate others.
“There was a spot on my face yes- that had gotten worse. So went to get biopsy. Was basal cell carcinoma. During my procedure doc also found other squamous cells. Was a quick and easy procedure. Glad I always get my skin checked!”
Alexa Bliss had been off WWE televised programming in recent weeks, with some fans wondering if it had to do with her contract and some even speculated that she may had been let go from the company. Fortunately, it appears that she is good on both fronts and should be returning to her wrestling roots soon.
Until then though, there’s always other things… such as oh, I don’t know… FOX’s The Masked Singer.
According to the Skin Care Foundation, there are over 3.5 million cases of basal cell carcinoma diagnosed each year. Fortunately, the cancer is curable if found and treated early.
