Unfortunately, Tamra Judge went through a pretty scary experience recently thanks to skin cancer. Thankfully, she was on top of getting her examinations and had the squamous skin cancer removed. Tamra shared her experiences on social media and hopefully this encouraged the Real Housewives of Orange County star’s followers to be diligent with skin care and dermatologist visits.
This is the one time when I am happy that a reality TV star exposed some skin on Instagram. It’s good Tamra was open, honest, and spread awareness about something that could affect anyone.

A week ago, Tamra put up a pic stitch of her experience at her dermatologist’s office. Along with the pic, Tamra wrote, “Let’s do this Dr Litchfield. @cacoastalderm having two spots cut out today.” She also shared some good advice with her followers: “Get your skin checked my friends it could save your life.” Preach, girl.
In another Instagram post, Tamra went a little more in-depth about what she had done at the doctor’s office. Tamra revealed, “The arm spot was a squamous cell skin cancer and the leg was a moderately atypical mole.” She also urged her followers to get checkups as well. Tamra wrote, “All done. Get your skin checked.”
We all know how much Tamra lives for her workouts these days, so I have to assume she was pretty upset when I saw her post “NO working out …. say what? Squamous cell skin cancer removal.” That’s really hitting Tamra where it hurts, but missing a few gym sessions is definitely worth it when the alternative is not removing cancerous skin cells. That’s for sure.
Tamra’s last update about her health included a selfie with the scar on her arm in the frame. In the caption, Tamra wrote, “It might not look pretty but my margins came back clear. Woot woot. Big thank you to @cacoastalderm. See you Tuesday to get my stitches out. #skincancerbegone. I think scars are sexy.”
