AceShowbiz - Teddi Mellencamp has something to celebrate this holiday season. The former star of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" announced on Wednesday, December 7 that she is now melanoma-free after a series of successful surgeries.

The 41-year-old showed the results of the procedures via Instagram by sharing a photo of her scars. She first wrote, "Finally here with another melanoma update, and it's one I'm happy to share. Pathology is back - the surgeries were successful and the margins are clear I also got genetic testing results and there are no mutations we need to worry about. And I just had a healthy mammogram (please don't forgo these either, ladies)."

"So I say peace out to 11 melanomas and 3 lymph nodes - I gladly hardly knew ya - and hello to a new sense of peace. It's been eye-opening how quickly things can change and it's a lesson I will never forget, nor quit speaking up about," she continued. "I want nothing more than for all of you to be proactive so you do not have to experience this. Let my scars be your inspiration to get preventative care."

Teddi went on to note, "I will now continue to get checked every 4-6 weeks, as my doc says this may be a record number in one area. You guys know I'm competitive but this is one record I'm not looking to beat." She added, "As always, thanks for all the love, support and well-wishes. I feel very blessed and grateful for it all."

On October 11, Teddi divulged that she has been diagnosed with stage 2 melanoma. "Melanoma awareness update. Despite my anxiety, I listened to the doctors and went in for my 3-month skin check last week since my previous melanoma," she said at that time. "They said I had another abnormal spot near my last one so they did a biopsy. I got the call this morning: Stage 2 melanoma."

Later that month, Teddi informed her online devotees that she just had surgery for the disease. She further shared, "I am grateful to my family, friends and husband who welcomed my pain and anxiety with open arms. I [love] you all so much and I just know I am going to kick this cancer's a**- with the help of my incredible doctors and nurses of course."
