According to the doctor of the American president, the surgery took place in February of this year, and the results of the biopsy showed that it was basal cell skin cancer.
United States President Joe Biden underwent surgery to remove a malignant tumor from his chest on February 16, 2023. This became known from a letter from Dr. Kevin O’Connor, published on the official website of the White House.
“February 16, at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the president had a chest skin injury removed as part of a comprehensive health assessment,” the report said.
According to O’Connor, the operation was a success, and the tumor site healed well. A biopsy revealed that Joe Biden had basal cell skin cancer.
The medic also noted that the American leader will continue to be under the supervision of dermatologists.
“Basal cell carcinoma lesions do not tend to ‘spread’ or metastasize as is known in some of the more serious skin cancers such as melanoma or squamous cell carcinoma,” O’Connor concluded.
Recall that according to the Daily Mail, on January 11, US First Lady Jill Biden was scheduled to have an operation to remove a neoplasm above her right eye. It was reported that the wife of the American president was diagnosed with skin cancer.
We also wrote that on February 13, Russian journalists reported that the Russian Federation had classified contracts for oncological examinations of Vladimir Putin. Media representatives who previously had access to the documents noted that data indicating that the President of the Russian Federation periodically visits an oncologist has disappeared from the Russian public procurement website.
According to Newsweek on February 26, many Western experts doubt the veracity of rumors about incurable diseases that Vladimir Putin allegedly suffers from. Mark Galeotti, director of the consulting firm Mayak Intelligence, sees these messages as wishful thinking.
