Melanie Griffith Allegedly Suffers From Skin Cancer Again After Actress Was Spotted With Red Blotches On Her Hand
Melanie Griffith is allegedly sparking health concerns from her family and friends after photos of her hands with red blotches went viral online.
In its March 14 issue, National Enquirer claimed that there are fears that Griffith is battling skin cancer again. The actress previously battled the illness but was in remission for years.
“Everyone is wondering what’s going on with Melanie’s scary-looking hands. She may say she’s getting it checked out, but it doesn’t look good. She’s had issues with skin cancer before, and the fear is it’s come back,” the source said.
Dr. Gabe Mirkin, a Florida-based doctor, said that it’s also possible that the red blotches are the side effects of her treatment of actinic keratosis.
“Actinic keratosis are pre-cancers on the skin. They are usually treated with liquid nitrogen sprays, which destroy them. It appears she had a whole bunch of actinic keratoses on her hands. The doctor just sprayed liquid nitrogen on them for a few seconds, and she got red hemorrhages and loss of superficial skin, which can heal by itself, usually with no scarring whatsoever,” the source said.
Mirkin also claimed that doctors have been making a fortune from spraying these kinds of superficial skin pre-cancers.
According to the source, Dakota Johnson’s mom also takes her skincare very seriously. So, Griffith’s friends hope that the red blotches on her hand are just an effect of her skincare routine and not anything serious like skin cancer.
And they also hope that the blotches can be diminished or eradicated with proper treatment.
Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time that Griffith is rumored to be dealing with some health problems.
In November, Globe claimed that the actress could be facing some life-threatening health problems that’s why she has bruises on her hands.
“If she’s bleeding into the skin then it’s most likely due to anti-clotting medicines in response to a secret heart attack she hasn’t publicly disclosed,” Mirkin said at the time.
But months passed and Griffith never made headlines due to her alleged health issues. If the actress is battling something serious, more reputable sources would’ve already reported on it.
The fact that only tabloids have been speculating about Griffith’s health means that they are just making up stories about the actress.
At the end of the day, Griffith’s fans don’t have anything to worry about.
