Sebelius Has Skin Cancer Removed

KSCB News - October 22, 2009 12:00 am

The office of Health and Human Services Secretary and former Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius says she had a slow-growing form of skin cancer removed from her forehead Tuesday.

The spot was a basal cell carcinoma, the most common form of

skin cancer and a highly curable type since it typically is easily

cut away.

When Sebelius testified before Congress on Wednesday she had a

small bandage on her forehead with a puffy, bruised-looking eye

just beneath. That is typical of the minor swelling that follows

the outpatient procedure.

In a statement, her office said, “The surgery was successful.”
