A skin lesion removed during President Joe Biden’s routine physical exam last month was cancerous, but no further treatment is required after its removal, the White House physician said Friday.
In a memo released by the White House, Kevin O’Connor said a lesion removed from Biden’s chest and sent for a biopsy during his February 16 health assessment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center was basal cell carcinoma. .
“As expected, the biopsy confirmed that the small lesion was a basal cell carcinoma. All cancerous tissue was successfully removed,» O’Connor wrote. «No further treatment is required.»
