Andy Cohen revealed he was diagnosed with skin cancer after his friend Kelly Ripa urged him to get a mark above his lip checked out.
Andy Cohen has been battling skin cancer.
The 'Watch What Happens: Live' scar had a mark on his lip checked out at the urging of his friend Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos, and a specialist confirmed it was a melanoma.
Andy was guest-hosting 'Live With Kelly' on Friday (25.11.16) when he revealed the news, but he didn't say when he was diagnosed or whether he has finished treatment, but the 48-year-old star - a self-proclaimed ''tanorexic'' - insisted he is doing well.
Both he and Kelly stressed the importance of checking the skin as the 46-year-old beauty admitted Andy was the third friend of hers who she had urged to have a suspicious mark looked at by doctors.
Andy recently admitted he is open to having a child and thinks it is the ''closest'' he's ever come to wanting a family of his own.
Discussing how he talks about his loneliness and wanting more out of life in his new autobiography, 'Superficial', he said: ''I am the least introspective person typically, but the course of writing this diary, actually, for three years has made me think about things in a totally different way.
''[I'm considering] opening myself up to love and a relationship and maybe a kid. I think I'm closer to that spot than I ever was.
''I feel like I can just do it.''
And the presenter admitted ''everything's great'' in his relationship with a mystery man at the moment.
He said: ''I put the pen down in May of this year because I'm sitting there writing at Memorial Day, and I was looking at this guy.
''I started to get emotionally exhausted reporting on my life kind of, and I said, 'I have to go live it. I've got to go do this. There's this great guy here.'''
American Thighs was released on this day in 1994.
His new album Underneath It All is out now.
