Breaking: Biden Had Cancer Removed from Chest, Must Get Regular Screenings Now

Published on

The lesion removed from President Joseph Biden’s chest last month was a basal cell carcinoma, a common kind of skin cancer, his doctor revealed on Friday, adding that no more treatment was necessary.

Dr. Kevin O’Connor, Biden’s veteran White House physician, stated that “all malignant tissue was effectively removed” at the president’s routine checkup on February 16.

At a recent medical checkup, Biden, 80, was certified “healthy, vigorous, and fit” to carry out his White House duties by Dr. O’Connor. This comes just weeks before Biden is scheduled to announce his candidacy for re-election in 2024.

The removal location on Biden’s chest has “healed nicely,” according to O’Connor, and the president will continue to undergo monthly skin inspections as part of his usual health regimen.

Basal cells are one of the most prevalent and treatable kinds of cancer, especially when detected early. According to O’Connor, they do not tend to spread like other malignancies, but their size may increase, which is why they are removed.

Biden had “several localized non-melanoma skin cancers”  removed from his body before he began his presidency, O’Connor stated in his Feb. 16 assessment on the president’s health, noting that Biden spent a great deal of time in the sun as a child.

Jill Biden also had multiple lesions removed in January.

O’Connor stated that exams verified the lesions above Jill Biden’s right eye and on her breast to be basal cell carcinomas.

To remove and evaluate the lesions, the 71-year-old first lady underwent a standard outpatient operation known as Mohs surgery.
