Bruce Jenner Speaks Up on Skin Cancer Surgery Reports


Bruce Jenner


The former Olympian confirmed having skin cancer and a recent Mohs surgery on his nose to remove it.

Reality TV star Bruce Jenner has now openly spoken about having skin cancer shortly after reports came out that he had undergone surgery last Monday, September 16, to remove the cancerous tissue on his nose. The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star also revealed having had the condition for quite some time now, a result of the sun damage brought on by many hours of playing golf and staying outdoors.

"I was diagnosed with...Basal cell carcinoma and have undergone Mohs surgery to remove it," said the 63-year-old former Olympic track and field champion. "I have been struggling with this for several years and appreciate all of the support and prayers while I continue to fight the battle against skin cancer."

Jenner was seen getting morning coffee in Calabasas, California on Tuesday with very noticeable bandages on his nose. It apparently was his second time to go under the knife this year, the first procedure being to remove a cancerous lesion on his check, both part of the ongoing treatment he is getting to make himself cancer-free.

After the initial scare, Jenner is reportedly "recovering [and] his prognosis is excellent." The avid golfer also offered up some advice for those at risk of developing the same condition as his, "This has taught me to be extra vigilant when out in the sun and I encourage others to get regular checkups and always wear sunscreen."
