Bush has 2 moles removed, tested

February 17, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

President Bush had two moles removed from his left temple. His doctors expect tests on the skin growths to show that they are noncancerous.

The five-minute procedure, called a shave biopsy, was performed in the White House office of Bush's official physician. A dermatologist from Walter Reed Army Medical Center did the procedure.

The president will have a 1-inch scab on his temple, spokesman Scott Stanzel said.

Test results will be available by the middle of next week.
