Andy Cohen Reveals Skin Cancer Diagnosis on ‘Live With Kelly’ (Video)

Bravo host thanks Kelly Ripa for insisting he get mysterious mark on his lip checked out

Bravo host Andy Cohen had a cancer scare earlier this year, he revealed Friday.

While guest co-hosting “Live with Kelly” with his friend Kelly Ripa, Cohen said that it was Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos who noticed a black discoloration on his lip and insisted that he get it checked out by a doctor.

“The two of you were dogmatic that I get it checked out,” Cohen recalled. “And I didn’t, because I was like, oh no, I’m sure it’s nothing. And she kept on me… And finally I did [get it checked], and it was melanoma.”

Melanoma is one of the most serious forms of skin cancer.

Cohen revealed Ripa first noticed the black dot on his lip in April, at a party for Anderson Cooper’s mother, and that everything is fine now.

“The lip heals very well,” he said. “I really had a chunk removed out of it.”

Ripa said this was the third time she had spotted skin cancer on a friend.
