Bruce told the site that luckily he is OK now and his prognosis is “excellent,” but that he’s been diagnosed with melanoma and has been undergoing surgery to treat it. He said:
“I was diagnosed with a form of Melanoma called Basal cell carcinoma and have undergone Mohs surgery to remove it. I have been struggling with this for several years and appreciate all of the support and prayers while I continue to fight the battle against skin cancer.”
E! reports that Bruce had surgery just this past week, which was the second procedure he had within the year where he had to get cancerous cells removed from his face.
But phew, Bruce is good now and is healthy and just recovering. For more details on the story, click over to EOnline.com.
