Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro said that he has a possible skin cancer after he had a mole removed from his ear. Bolsonaro said he was given anesthesia during the operation in the Brazilian Air Force Hospital earlier in the day. “I was so tired that I just lay down on the bed and slept,” he said on Wednesday.
“I have fair skin and I spent much time fishing in my life, I like it very much,” the president said. “So there is a chance of skin cancer.” However, the presidency’s Communication Secretariat said in a statement that the president is in good health, with no indication of a skin cancer.
