Twitch Streamer Ninja Urges Fans to Get Skin Checkups After Cancer Scare

Popular Twitch streamer and Fortnite icon Tyler Blevins, known as Ninja, has recently shared a warning with his fans. He urged them to prioritize their health and get regular skin checkups after his own cancer scare.

Ninja underwent a procedure to remove a melanoma, a type of skin cancer. However, a second “dark spot” has appeared near the initial removal, prompting further investigations. Ninja credits his wife for scheduling an annual skin check that led to the discovery of the initial melanoma. He emphasizes the importance of checkups and encourages others to see their doctors regularly.

Receiving an early diagnosis is crucial when dealing with melanoma, as it can spread rapidly and become life-threatening. Despite the uncertainty surrounding the second spot, Ninja remains optimistic, and his dermatologist shares this optimism. Regular skin checks are essential in detecting and treating cancer early.

For those who wish to follow Ninja’s advice and get their skin checked, there are many free skin cancer check facilities available worldwide. You can find these facilities by visiting the AAD website or conducting a Google search for one in your area. Additionally, you can perform a self-exam using online resources if necessary.

Ninja’s cancer scare is not the first time a popular streamer has openly discussed their battle with cancer. Kyedae Shymko, another Twitch streamer, kept her fans informed during her fight against acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and is now on the road to recovery.

Since sharing his experience, Ninja has received an outpouring of support from fans and fellow content creators. We at Dot also extend our well-wishes to Ninja.
