Bush Has Lesion Removed From his Forehead

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

The White House is explaining that scar on President Bush's forehead today. It turns out the president had a benign lesion removed over the weekend.

A dermatologist "froze" the lesion in a typical procedure that destroys the cells and forms a scab as the skin repairs itself.

The president has had lesions removed before, including two noncancerous moles from his left temple last year, a precancerous lesion on his left arm in 2006 and a noncancerous skin growth on his neck in 2005.

While none of the growths has been cancerous, the president has regular checkups to guard against any lesions advancing to a more dangerous stage.
