Kevin Jonas diagnosed with skin cancer and posts a video to get checked

Kevin Jonas revealed his skin cancer diagnosis after finding a malignant mole on his forehead. In a June 11 Instagram video, he announced the remove a basal cell carcinoma.

Sometimes the best way to get the word out about keeping yourself safe is when a well known person gets a diagnosis and Kevin sharing the news is a good way to reach out to younger people and fans to be aware of their health.

He was diagnosed with skin cancer after discovering a malignant mole on his forehead.

"So today," he explained in a video shared to his Instagram June 11, "I am getting a basal cell carcinoma removed from my head."

Basal Cell carcinoma is a type of skin cancer that "occurs most often on areas of the skin that are exposed to the sun, such as your head and neck," according to the Mayo Clinic.

In the video, Kevin could be seen panning to a small mole and explaining, "Yes, that is a actual little skin cancer guy that just started to grow. And now, I have to get surgery to remove it. So, here we go."

The "Waffle House" singer didn't give his followers a final look at the mole post-surgery, but he did appear shocked by what he saw under the bandages. "All right, I'm all done," Kevin said following the procedure. "Now, it's time to heal and home."
