President Biden reportedly had a cancerous lesion removed during his yearly physical exam.
According to his doctor, a lesion on President Biden’s chest excised at his yearly medical exam last month was a basal cell carcinoma, and all malignant tissue was effectively removed.
A biopsy proved the lesion was basal cell carcinoma, one of the most prevalent kinds of skin cancer, according to the president’s physician, Kevin O’Connor.
O’Connor claimed that the region was treated at the time of the biopsy and that no additional treatment is necessary.
Before being elected to the White House, the president had non-melanoma skin malignancies removed.
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, basal cell carcinoma is the most frequent kind of skin cancer, with over 3 million cases detected each year.
Because they develop slowly, they are usually curable with little harm if found early.
Ending cancer has been a personal concern for Biden, whose son Beau Biden died of brain cancer at the age of 46 in 2015.
Last month, Biden received his yearly health test at Walter Reed.
O’Connor later claimed that Biden remained ‘robust’ and capable of carrying out the duties of the president.
The president’s health will be closely monitored over the next two years as he prepares to compete for reelection.
Biden would be 82 when he begins a second term, assuming he does win re-election.
