Biden says first lady Jill doing well after skin surgery

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - First lady Jill Biden is doing well following her skin surgery, U.S. President Joe Biden told reporters on Thursday, one day after cancerous skin lesions were removed from her face and chest.

"She's doing really well. She was under a long time," the president said. "She's up. We had breakfast this morning. She's recovering."

A third lesion was removed from Jill Biden's left eyelid and sent for examination on Wednesday as part of her procedure at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., the White House physician said earlier.
