Gov. Gary Herbert was recovering at home following an out-patient surgical procedure for basal cell carcinoma, the most common form of skin cancer, his office said Thursday.
The governor had the growth on his forehead removed Wednesday. His office said the treatment would not disrupt his official duties, apart from small changes to his public appearance schedule.
"The prognosis is for a complete recovery," said Herbert's spokeswoman, Ally Isom. "It's a routine procedure, so there's nothing alarming about it and the governor thinks it is a minor procedure."
