They remove a polyp from Joe Biden's colon, it is benign but precancerous

The US president, Joe Biden, had a benign but potentially cancerous polyp of about 3 millimeters that had lodged in the colon removed during his last medical examination.

The injury was discovered by the medical team during his routine colonoscopy examination last week, according to a report released by the president’s physician, Dr. Kevin C. O’Connor.

It is, according to this report, “a tubular adenoma, which is a benign, slow-growing lesion, but is believed to be precancerous,” although no further action is required at this time.

The polyp was sent to a laboratory for analysis and “is similar to the polyp that had been removed in 2008,” according to the White House specialist’s memorandum. The medical report also specifies that the US president should undergo a new colonoscopy within 7 to 10 years.

Biden briefly transferred her position to Vice President Kamala Harris last Friday so she could undergo a medical examination, making her the first woman to hold presidential power in US history. According to local media, O’Connor said that Biden was “healthy” and “vigorous,” while determining that the president was fit to carry out his duty.
