It's already done: The First Lady of the USA, Jill Biden (71), had to undergo surgery to remove two skin cancerous growths. The medical officer in the White House, Kevin O'Connor, can announce good news again: The 71-year-old is doing 'well' after the procedure and she is 'cheerful' again.
After several US media reported unanimously in early January that the First Lady of the USA, Jill Biden, would have to undergo an operation, the operation should now be over. 'A routine skin cancer screening found a small lesion over the First Lady's right eye,' said Medical Officer Kevin O'Connor. Biden originally sought treatment for a skin lesion near her right eye, reports 'ntv.de'.

The examination confirmed the suspicion of skin cancer. In addition, another affected area was found on the left half of the chest. Both skin areas could be successfully removed during the operation. O'Connor said the ulcers were skin cancer, but the doctor doesn't think the basal cell carcinomas are spreading any further. This distinguishes this form from other, dangerous types of skin cancer.
A tissue sample was also taken from Jill Biden, which is still being examined. According to 'ntv.de', the result of this investigation has not yet been determined. O'Connor said the First Lady was still suffering from swelling on her face after the procedure, but she was 'fine' and 'cheerful' again.
For her husband Joe Biden (80), who accompanied Jill to the hospital, is likely to bring back sad memories of his wife's illness. In 2015, his son Beau Biden († 46) died of a brain tumor . All the better that the First Lady now seems to be doing well again. (cre)source: vip.de
