The grandmother and grandson dynamic duo of Kevin and Lill has a huge YouTube following of their videos commenting on all things pop culture. They have amassed over 550,000 subscribers and often get a ton of feedback. On one particular video, the feedback was lifesaving.
As Lill and Kevin commented on Coachella fashion, viewers responded to something else: a spot on Lill’s nose. People encouraged her to get it checked out. Lill took her fan’s advice and found that she had a form of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma.
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra explains that this is a very erosive type of cancer which can destroy the surrounding tissue. It is also the most common type of cancer in the U.S. with over three million people diagnosed per year. The good news is by catching it early, the cancer was cut out and removed and is not likely to spread elsewhere. However, Lill needs to continue checking her skin every six months and looking at her skin at least once a month because she now has a fifty-fifty chance of getting another one.
Grandma Lill thanks her fans for noticing! The Doctors ask about what filming together is like. Kevin says his grandmother says doing the videos makes her feel younger. Lill says she feels 65! Kevin adds that filming has brought them a lot closer and that Lill is his best friend.
The Doctors discuss how this is one fascinating trend, diagnosing others after seeing photos or videos of them online or on television. The Doctors often discuss the negative effects of social media but this one is actually good!
