ROME, MAR 04 – Last month, US President Joe Biden had a skin cancer diagnosed during a routine health screening removed: the White House reported it, filmed by the BBC, specifying that he is now fine. “All cancerous tissue has been removed and no further treatment is needed,” said Biden’s doctor, who “will continue dermatological checkups as part of his ongoing health care.” The 80-year-old president underwent a checkup up in February and the White House said he was found to be healthy and “fit for duty.” Kevin O’Connor, Biden’s doctor, said the lesion was removed from Biden’s chest on February 16 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. “No further treatment will be needed,” he said, adding that the area has “healed well” since the biopsy was taken. Biden had basal cell carcinoma removed, which does not normally spread or metastasize and is one of the most common forms of skin cancer in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). It is slow growing, treatable, and causes minimal damage if treated early. (HANDLE).
