Skin Cancer Tumour Removed from Laura Bush's Leg
US First Lady Laura Bush had a skin cancer tumour removed from her leg in November, the White House has said.

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.

Doctors 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.
