Morning Show's Kylie Gilles Reveals Health Condition

She is best known as the host of Channel Seven’s The Morning show but on Tuesday, Kylie Gillies took to Instagram to reveal she has had a skin cancer scare.

The 50-year-old shared a snap showing the potentially cancerous sun spot just underneath her eye, before and after the treatment.

'This is me rocking an Actinic Keratosis,' she said in her post.

Hope you've had dinner! This is me rocking an Actinic Keratosis. On the left is what it originally looked like. Barely a spot.. so I ignored it for 18 months because I was frightened of what the treatment would be. Stupid. I realise the pic on the right LOOKS scary, but that was 2 weeks into treatment. And it was able to be completely covered by makeup. I had no days off work. Even on TV. I'm sharing these ugly pics so that you know you DON'T necessarily have to get these sunspots 'burnt' off. My treatment was a cream; a kind of 'chemo' cream. My doctor @drnatashacook realised i needed the solution to be the least invasive possible. If ignored, these spots can turn cancerous so I beg you not to wait..like I did. And now, 5 weeks later? There's not even a mark. Obviously I'm no expert..just a TV chick..but just worth asking the question of your doctor. 🌞🌞🌞#skincancer #skincancersucks #skincancerawareness #sunspot #efudixcream #paidinfull #notsponsored #sharingiscaring #communityservice
