Anderson wrote on his blog that he has skin cancer.

"On a personal note, I've been off for the last couple of days," the 40-year-old wrote on his CNN-sanctioned Anderson Cooper 360° blog Wednesday morning.

"I had minor surgery on Monday. A small spot of skin cancer was removed from under my left eye. I hadn't planned on mentioning this, but I still have stitches and you'll no doubt notice them tonight."

Stay out of the sun kids. It's not worth it.

Get well Coop.
