Rachel Maddow Undergoes Surgery For Skin Cancer
Rachel Maddow opened up about the harrowing health scare she and her partner, Susan Mikula, endured over the past few weeks. She recounted that Mikula had noticed that a mole on Maddow’s neck changing from the past few months. After a biopsy performed by a dermatologist, it was confirmed that Maddow had skin cancer.
“All this to say, I would like to introduce you to my band-aid,” the MSNBC host told her audience. “I had a few days off because I had surgery at NYU Langone on Friday. They’re fantastic. They got it, they got all of it. I’m good. I have clear margins, the whole thing.”
Maddow encouraged viewers of her show to make regular doctor’s appointments to help catch skin issues early on.
In November, Mikula had a near-fatal encounter with Covid-19.
