Anderson Cooper Gets Surgery For Skin Cancer

Anderson Cooper Gets Surgery For Skin Cancer

CNN host Anderson Cooper went under the knife on Monday to have “a small spot of skin cancer removed from under [his] left eye.”

Explaining the stitches under his left eye, Anderson said, “I’ve been off for the last couple of days. I had minor surgery on Monday. I hadn’t planned on mentioning this, but I still have stitches and you’ll no doubt notice them tonight.”

He then joked, “Don’t want you to think I got into a fist fight with Charlie Rose.”

Very funny, Mr. Cooper.

Tune in tonight to watch Anderson Cooper 360 @ 10PM ET/PT on CNN. They’ll be talking to Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama about his relationship with the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Iraq, the economy, and the campaign.

    Wow I hope he’s totally cancer free. it’s weird what he said about Charlie rose because the other night Charlie appeared on camera with a black eye and a bandage on his forehead! Before he started the interview he mentioned that he had fell on on the sidewalk pavement.

  • jing

    how does the dude have cancer? he stays out of the sun! Right? Atleast he looks pale.

  • joy

    Vanderbilts are from northern European stock. I am too and despite being pale and generally avoiding sun I had skin cancer before I turned 30. I think the destruction of the ozone layer is making things worse for us pale types. Apparently Anderson’s mother had skin cancer, and with the time he spends places like Africa I’d wondered if he’d have trouble. Best wishes, AC!

    I hope he is doing well.

    The more pale you are, the more you are susceptible to the damage of the sun’s rays. even if you do your best to avoid the sun, you still are exposed just walking around outside going about your ordinary life. Also, sometimes only one severe sunburn in childhood can develop into melenoma or other carcinomas in adulthood.
