When Bruce Jenner was photographed with a bandage covering his nose this week, many speculated what was going on that caused him to cover up. It’s now been revealed that the Kardashian/Jenner patriarch recently underwent surgery to remove skin cancer.
On Monday, Bruce reportedly had a chunk of tissue removed from his nose, which required 30 stitches to heal (hence the large bandage). A source tells E! News that the 63-year-old is “recovering” and that his “prognosis is excellent.”
The cancer is allegedly due to sun damage, and back in 2012, the former Olympian had a similar procedure done on the side of his face.
