Surgeons also removed a cancerous lesion above Jill Biden’s right eye and a cancerous lesion in her breast last week.
Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer, but it is also the most curable form. It is considered highly treatable, especially if detected early. This is a slow-growing cancer that is usually confined to the surface of the skin, and in most cases doctors can remove it all with a shallow incision. It rarely causes serious complications or is life-threatening.
“Dr. Biden is recovering well from surgery,” O’Connor wrote.
