Melanie Griffith skin cancer survivor

Actress Melanie Griffith underwent surgery to remove early stage skin cancer from her face in December 2009.

Though the surgery was a success it left Griffith with a noticeable black eye following the surgery leading to media speculation until the cancer diagnosis was announced.

Fortunately the cancer was caught early enough to prevent any further complications.
