Bush has 2 moles removed, tested

From Times Wire Reports

President Bush had two moles removed from his left temple. His doctors expect tests on the skin growths to show that they are noncancerous.

The five-minute procedure, called a shave biopsy, was performed in the White House office of Bush’s official physician. A dermatologist from Walter Reed Army Medical Center did the procedure.

The president will have a 1-inch scab on his temple, spokesman Scott Stanzel said.

Test results will be available by the middle of next week.
