Biden underwent cancer surgery in February

The 80-year-old President of the United States has shown his willingness to run for re-election

The President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, underwent surgery on February 16 for a skin lesion on his chest, which turned out to be cancer and which was successfully concluded, the White House announced this Friday. According to the statement of the White House physician, Kevin O’Connor, the intervention of the day Biden met had a medical examination. At the time, the White House said the president was in “good health” and “fit” to perform his duties. This Friday’s statement explains that that day, at Walter Reed military medical center, Biden had a “skin lesion” removed from his chest. The tissue removed was biopsied and “as expected” it contained cancer cells. All the cancerous tissues were removed “successfully” according to the president’s doctor, who also explained that the entire affected area was treated with “electrodesiccation”, which consists of drying the tissues at a high frequency. “Nothing further is needed,” the statement added.

A doctor confirmed this report from the White House, which shows that basal cell carcinoma lesions “do not tend to spread or metastasize” as they do with “more serious” cases of skin cancer, such as melanoma or squamous cell carcinoma. However, it is acknowledged that this type of cancerous lesions can become large and generate more serious problems that require intervention beyond surgical removal. The area that underwent biopsy “healed” according to the medical report, which adds that the next step will include a dermatological review. The White House announced this intervention fifteen days after it happened. At the time, on the day Biden officially underwent a medical exam, the White House announced that a “handover” biopsy was performed on a “small lesion” on the skin of his chest.

It was also revealed that the president had to undergo regular dermatological make-ups because he spent “a lot of time” alone in his youth. And on other occasions, other injuries similar to those inflicted on this Friday, which were clear edges, were removed. “President Biden is a healthy, energetic man of 80 years of age, and is fit to successfully carry out the duties of the presidency, including the duties of Chief Executive Officer, Head of State, and Commander-in-Chief.” The report was given on April 16. on February, Kevin O’Connor. Biden, the longest-serving president in the history of the United States, underwent physical, neurological, dental and vision exams that day, in addition to gastrointestinal tests. In the president’s report, O’Connor mentioned mild acid reflux problems that require him to clear his throat more often when he talks or coughs, and those that worsen after eating. Then the doctor also mentioned that Biden suffers from arthritis and a fracture, which occurred in 2020 in one leg, makes him walk stiffly. Finally, as O’Connor said at the time, “a thorough neurological examination” was done, which showed that Biden had not suffered from any disorder in recent months, such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease.
