“All of the cancerous tissue was successfully removed,” O’Connor said.

Mohs surgery is an outpatient procedure in which thin layers of skin are removed and tested for cancer.
Jill Biden’s office announced last week that she would undergo the procedure.
In April 2021, she had a “standard medical procedure” at an outpatient center near the George Washington University campus.
And in July 2021, she traveled to Walter Reed to have debris removed from her foot after stepping on an unnamed object while walking on a Hawaii beach.
Last week, the East Wing published a letter from the doctor to the President, Dr. Kevin O’Connor in which he said that Dr. Biden will undergo the procedure on Wednesday

Jill Biden, who teaches English at Northern Virginia Community College, brought a little heartache to the schoolchildren on Monday.
“You know I’m a teacher, so I’m just wondering, did you skip school to be here?” she said. “Maybe,” she remarked when the children looked embarrassed. ‘Okay, thanks for being here.’
Ahead of Monday’s NFL event, she hosted a conversation about women’s empowerment at the official residence of US Ambassador to Mexico Ken Salazar.
“We have never been silent,” she told the group. “But women have been silenced. Raising your voice is a struggle for many women around the world and they have had to fight for a seat at the table.
“When women are left behind or pushed aside, it hurts us all. But when women get the opportunities they deserve, there are no limits.”
