She was told that the spot, which has since been removed, was “not full-blown melanoma” but also “not benign”.

There’s definitely worry in the back of my mind. Skin cancer is something that doesn’t just go away or get better on its own. I know that I am at higher risk.

In the preview clip, Trent said: “Some of this also may be just the matter of fear — going to the doctor and getting bad news.” He added:
We’ve been down some rough roads. And I think that’s kind of … what helps prepare us and what puts on our fighting gear to get prepared for a challenge that we have with Amber, a cancer challenge.
