"Thank you for being real and honest about your situation. Skin cancer is always looked at from a 'cut it off and done' kinda cancer. You sharing opens doors for others to realize how important it is to check your skin! Hope surgery went well and keep sharing your experiences, it truly matters," wrote one Instagram user.

The American Cancer Society also applauded Kevin for bringing awareness to skin cancer and advocating for early screening, "Thanks for sharing your story, Kevin! Glad you got it checked in time, that’s why it’s very important to #getscreened early. 🙌🏻"

The Skin Cancer Foundation echoed the American Cancer Society's comments and highlighted the importance of screenings, "So sorry to hear about your BCC, Kevin. Thank you for raising awareness. Early detection is key. Wishing you the best on your recovery journey."

Another fan suggested that "everything happens for a reason" — and had Kevin been on tour as previously scheduled, he may have missed the cancerous mole. They wrote, "Glad it was nothing major and wishing you a speedy recovery! But this is just another example that everything happens for a reason, if the tour wasn't postponed you might've not noticed it in a reasonable time frame."
