Biden’s wife was diagnosed with cancer. The first lady has already been operated on
US First Lady Jill Biden has been diagnosed with cancer. The 71-year-old wife of the American president has already been operated on.
This was announced by her press secretary Vanessa Valdivia, posting a medical report on the results of the procedure on Twitter.
Examinations confirmed that the masses on Jill Biden’s right eye and chest are basal cell carcinoma. They have already been removed.
The third tumor on the left eyelid is examined.
The procedure took place at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
Joe Biden spent almost nine hours in the hospital with his wife, after which he returned to the White House alone. Jill soon returned to administration, “feeling good and in good spirits.” Although she had “some swelling of the face and bruises.”
Basal cell carcinoma is considered to be highly treatable, especially if detected early. It grows slowly and is usually confined to the surface of the skin so that it can be removed entirely.
The carcinoma was discovered on January 4 during a routine skin cancer screening. Doctors recommended removing the lesion above the right eye “as a precaution.”
