Richard Simmons was diagnosed with skin cancer.

Simmons picked it up Facebook on Tuesday, March 19 to share the details.

“There was this strange looking bump under my right eye. I had a tube of Neosporin that I applied morning and night…it was still there. It was time to call my dermatologist,” Simmons, 75, wrote in the lengthy post. “I sat in his chair and he looked at it through a magnifying mirror. He told me he had to scrape it off and examine it. Now I’m getting a little nervous.”

Simmons' dermatologist then told him he had cancer. “I asked him what type of cancer it was and he said basal cell carcinoma. I told him to stop calling me names. He laughed,” he wrote. “‘You need to go to the cancer doctor immediately. But now that you're here, I suggest you apply some Botox to your forehead and smile lines and pump up your cheeks.' I patted his hand and said, 'Not today, Doctor.'”

After the doctor's visit, Simmons sought out a skin cancer surgeon who could help him with treatment.

“I was shocked to see all the skin cancer they had. Some had cancer on their heads, faces and necks,” he recalled. “I slowly walked through this immaculate room and Dr. Massey came in to greet me: 'I have to apologize because I just ate salmon, bagels and onions.' He smelled like a deli. But I didn’t care, I just needed his help.”

Simmons continued: “He explained that he had to burn my skin to remove the cancer cells. There was no anesthesia, it just had to be done with a small instrument. As he began to burn my skin, tears streamed down my cheeks. “You can’t cry while doing this” and he wiped away my tear. The burning really hurt my skin. It took about 30 minutes.”

After the procedure, Simmons received the “sad news” that the doctor couldn’t “get it all figured out.”

“He burned my face again. This time it was worse than before. It was deeper,” he concluded. “This time I didn't cry, but I gritted my teeth.” The post ended with the message “To be continued,” which hinted that Simmons would share more about his journey soon.

Simmons' update on his health comes days after he confused fans with a cryptic message.

“I have news to tell you,” he wrote via X on Monday, March 18. “Please don’t be sad. I'm dying. Oh, I can see your faces now. The truth is that we all die. With every day of our lives we get closer to our death. Why am I telling you this? Because I want you to live your life to the fullest every day. Get up in the morning and look at the sky… count your blessings and enjoy it.”

The social media thread included tips on exercise, good sleep and healthy eating, but did not address Simmons' health. The former professional fitness trainer clarified the post later in the day after it sparked fears he would die.

“I'm sorry that many of you were upset by my message today,” Simmons added via X. “Even the press contacted me. I'm not dying. It was a message about how we should embrace every day we have. Sorry for this confusion.”
