In an interview with Health magazine, Actress Michelle Monaghan, 35, tells the world about the skin cancer she dealt with a few years ago. Her husband took notice of a mole on the back of her leg that she felt was nothing to worry about. After caving in and getting herself checked out, results showed that the mole was in fact cancerous and she had it removed right away. The experience has made her much more cautious and has also caused her to severely regret the 10 years that she was a smoker.

We really appreciate all of these celebs opening up about their health experiences. It is important for everyone to know that it never hurts to get something checked out. From the recent news about both Michelle Monaghan and Giulianna Rancic just remember its best to be safe and get periodic check ups just in case.
