Earlier this year, President Joe Biden had a skin lesion removed from his chest that is now confirmed to have been cancerous, though his doctor said no further treatment was required.
Biden’s doctor, Kevin O’Connor, said that test results showed the lesion to be a common form of skin cancer called a basal cell carcinoma, the Associated Press reported. O’Connor said that “all cancerous tissue was successfully removed” during the president’s periodic physical examination on Feb. 16.
The lesion was first revealed in O’Connor’s summary of the physical, where he wrote that a “small lesion” had been “excised” and sent for a biopsy.
O’Connor said that the removal site on Biden’s chest has “healed nicely,” AP reported.
This story initially said that there was a ‘medical emergency’ at the White House; however, the reason for the ambulance is unclear. American Military News regrets this error.
