Renowned Fortnite streamer Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, aged 32, stunned his fans by revealing he has been diagnosed with melanoma, a type of skin cancer.

Posting on Twitch, where he commands a massive following of 19 million users, Ninja shared the news of the cancerous mole discovered on his foot during a routine check-up.

Following a brief tenure on Mixer, Microsoft‘s streaming platform that shut down in 2020, Ninja returned to Twitch and solidified his position as one of the most influential figures in the gaming world.

His fame extends beyond gaming, with appearances on mainstream programs like The Masked Singer US.

Ninja disclosed that the melanoma diagnosis came after a visit to a dermatologist for an annual mole check, where a suspicious mole on his foot was identified.

Melanoma, a form of skin cancer caused predominantly by UV exposure, can metastasize to other body parts if left untreated.

The Cancer Society emphasizes sun safety measures, including sunscreen application and regular check-ups, particularly for individuals with a higher risk, such as those with fair skin or a family history of skin cancer.

Recognizing the importance of early detection, Ninja is urging others to prioritize regular skin screenings.

Widespread support poured in from fellow content creators and fans, demonstrating solidarity and well-wishes for Ninja’s recovery journey.

By openly discussing his diagnosis, Ninja inspired a wave of individuals to schedule their own skin evaluations, underscoring the importance of proactive health monitoring.

Celebrities like Hugh Jackman, Khloe Kardashian, and Bob Marley have also battled with malignant melanoma, shedding light on the seriousness of skin cancer.
