“Small wound” above eye: Jill Biden faces facial surgery

“Small wound” above the eye
Jill Biden to have facial surgery

Jill Biden had to undergo facial surgery due to a defect in the skin of her right eye. The first lady of the United States will undergo surgery next week.

US First Lady Jill Biden will undergo facial surgery this coming Wednesday. Several US media reported this citing the news from their office. “A routine skin cancer exam revealed a small lesion in the first lady’s right eye,” White House physician Kevin O’Connor said. “As a precaution, the doctors recommended removing the wound,” O’Connor said.

The 71-year-old will undergo an outpatient procedure on January 11 at Walter Reed National Army Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Called Mohs surgery, thin layers of skin are usually removed to look for signs of various types of skin cancer. Care must be taken to ensure that cancerous tissue is removed while healthy tissue is preserved.

At 71, Biden is the oldest first lady in US history, and her husband, 80, is the oldest US president in history. Cancer comes with personal memories of Joe Biden, whose son Beau died of a brain tumor in 2015. He made reducing the death rate from cancer a priority of his presidency.

Democrats expect Biden to run again

In her role as First Lady, Jill Biden is fighting cancer and promoting good prevention. In December, she met with African heads of state and heads of government to discuss cancer treatment for women and girls. “Together we can beat cancer as we know it,” she said confidently. If her husband, Joe Biden, continues to serve as US president, she may continue this pledge.

Joe Biden had announced that he was discussing the possibility of a second term with his family while vacationing on St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands. Many Democrats close to Biden are confident he will run again, and his family is behind him, according to US broadcaster CNN. Biden returned from New Year’s vacation on Monday.
