The wife of US President George W. Bush had a biopsy of a small sore on the shin of her right leg shortly before US congressional elections, White House spokesperson Eryn Witcher said Monday evening.
AdvertisementDoctors identified it as a squamous cell carcinoma, the second most common type of skin cancer.
"Because of Mrs. Bush's early detection and treatment the area on her leg is healing well and she's continuing with her schedule," the statement said.
