Bruce Jenner’s Nose Issue is Skin Cancer
This week Bruce Jenner had nose surgery to remove skin cancer. Bruce had a slice of tissue removed requiring him to get 30 stitches. According to TMZ, Doctors attribute the skin cancer to damaging UV rays and over exposure to the sun.
Jenner was spotted with bandages on while he was drinking his morning coffee Tuesday morning in Calabasas. This is the second time cancerous tissue was on the side of his face, back in 2012, Bruce went through the same procedure. At that time, doctors had warned him to use better skin protections. Bruce Jenner plays a lot of golf, and it s speculated that this is the primary cause of his facial skin cancer. Mr. Jenner is recovering, and doing fine, but is expected to have a big scar on his nose.

Most cases of skin cancers are caused from excessive sun or sunbed exposure. Treatment is generally via surgical removal. This particular form of cancer has one of the highest survival rates.
