Bruce Jenner was forced to undergo the knife earlier this week as a result of skin cancer, according to TMZ.

The disease was located on his nose, where he reportedly had the procedure, and a “chunk of tissue” removed from the area and 30 stitches placed into the area.

TMZ writes that the cancer on the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star was a result of sun damage to the skin and marks the second time he has fought the disease. In 2012, he had the same procedure too remove cancerous tissue on the side of his face as well.
