Washington, March 4: A skin lesion removed from President Joe Biden's chest last month was a basal cell carcinoma -- a common form of skin cancer -- his doctor said Friday, adding that no further treatment was required.

Dr Kevin O'Connor, the White House doctor who has served as Biden's longtime physician, said "all cancerous tissue was successfully removed" during the president's routine physical test on February 16. US Presidential Election 2024: President Joe Biden Declared ‘Healthy, Vigorous and Fit To Successfully Execute Duties of Presidency’ After Medical Exam at Walter Reed Hospital.

O'Connor said the site of the removal on Biden's chest has "healed nicely" and the president will continue regular skin screenings as part of his routine health plan. US President Joe Biden Arrives in Kyiv on Surprise Visit Amid Ukraine-Russia War (Watch Video).

Basal cells are among the most common and easily treated forms of cancer -- especially when caught early. O'Connor said they do not tend to spread like other cancers, but could grow in size, which is why they are removed.
