Tarek El Moussa battled thyroid cancer in 2013, but that wasn't the only health crisis the Flip or Flop star dealt with!

The house flipper appeared on TODAY and revealed that he was diagnosed with testicular cancer just one month after finding out he had thyroid cancer!

"I was at the hospital and they said, 'Hey, I hate to tell you, you have testicular cancer,'" he told Al Roker.

"So the second I heard I had testicular cancer knowing I already had thyroid cancer, I thought I was gonna die," he said. "I thought I was rotting inside and I was so scared to lose my family."

Radar reported that his thyroid cancer was in remission as of January. Tarek, 35, declined to comment on the status of his testicular cancer.

Instead, he added that his stepfather is currently battling the disease and is undergoing chemotherapy.

Tarek is currently filming season 7 of Flip or Flop with his soon-to-be ex Christina.

Christina, 33, told PEOPLE that their marriage crumbled after going "through a lot in a short amount of time."
