A star on “Real Housewives of Orange County” revealed she’s battling melanoma after discovering a cancerous growth on her backside.
Tamra Judge, 49, shared an image of the mole on her left butt cheek to Instagram and told her followers that her plans to compete in a bodybuilding competition this November are now in flux.
“Im showing you this picture because this is what melanoma looks like,” she captioned the picture. “I don’t want sympathy, I want you to save YOUR ass and get your skin checked . This was just a small black flat freckle…. I had no idea!”
Judge then preached her confidence that she’ll recover well from the skin cancer since she discovered it early on.

“I’ve been a little sad , worried and pissed off,” she wrote. “But we caught it early and that makes me happy.”
The reality star has previously had three basil cell skin cancer blemishes removed from her body, as well as one squamous cell skin cancer spot, according to People.
Those types of skin cancer can usually be easily removed if discovered early on.
Judge, who has four kids, has been a regular cast member on “Real Housewives of Orange County” for nine seasons after joining in Season 3.
