WASHINGTON, March 4 (AP) — A skin lesion removed from President Joe Biden’s chest last month was basal cell carcinoma — a common form of skin cancer — his doctor said Friday, adding Said no further treatment was needed.

Dr. Kevin O’Connor, the White House doctor who served as Biden’s longtime doctor, said during the president’s routine physical examination on February 16 that “all cancerous tissue was successfully removed.”

O’Connor said the part of Biden’s chest that was removed is “recovering very well,” and the president will continue to undergo regular skin screenings as part of his daily health regimen.

Basal cell is one of the most common and easily treatable forms of cancer — especially when caught early. They don’t tend to spread like other cancers, but they can get bigger, which is why they’re removed, O’Connor said. (Associated Press)
