BRUCE Jenner has reportedly undergone surgery for skin cancer.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was spotted with a bandage on his nose earlier this week.
Now it has been alleged he had some potentially dangerous tissue removed from his face.
TMZ reports that the operation took place on Monday and it required 30 stitches.
The following morning he showed signs of a procedure when he collected coffee in Calabasas, California.
Bruce’s cancer stems from sun damage, according to medical experts.
The stepfather to the Kardashian siblings is known for playing a lot of golf and enjoying outdoor activities on the E! Network show he appears on.
He is said to be feeling good after the medical event but a family source says he "will probably have a big scar on his nose."
The website states that Bruce underwent the same procedure in 2012, however the cancerous tissue was on the side of his face instead.
At the time doctors reportedly warned him to use a superior protection.
Bruce is the biological dad of teenagers Kendall and Kylie Jenner with Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner.
He has four children from previous relationships including Brandon and Brody, who both appear on the small screen with him.
