Gov Scott Treated For Early Warning Signs of Skin Cancer

Sep 10, 2012

Governor Rick Scott could be showing the early warning signs of skin cancer, after he recently underwent treatment for some precancerous cells.

While talking to reporters Monday, Governor Rick Scott confirmed he had some precancerous cells on his head. Scott says that’s why he had two small bandages.

“I had some skin cancer. It was pre-cancerous. So, it started bruising," said Scott. "Hopefully, it will go away. The story is I won the fight, right? Unfortunately, that was not true.”

Precancerous cells are one of the warning signs of cancer. A spokeswoman for the Governor’s office says the cells were removed as part of a standard preventative measure. If caught early, skin cancer can be cured.
