The White House has clarified Joe Biden's cancer remarks that alarmed the world on social media.

This led to a worldwide discussion on Twitter on whether Biden has cancer or not. There were even previous statements of Biden coming out on health issues.
Kessler in another tweet spoke about skin cancer surveillance, and routine. His tweet said, "It is well-established that President Biden did spend a good deal of time in the sun in his youth. He has had several localized, non-melanoma skin cancers removed with Mohs surgery before he started his presidency. These lesions were completely excised, with clear margins. Total body skin exam was performed for dermatologic surveillance. Several small areas of actinic change were treated with liquid nitrogen cryotherapy, but there are no areas suspicious for skin cancer at this time. No biopsies were required."
The writer also referred to a tweet from Townhall which is a political commentary website. The Townhall tweeted combining clips of Biden talking about asthma and now cancer.
Townhall tweeted and said, "BIDEN IN APRIL: I have asthma and 80% of the people who, in fact, we grew up with have asthma.
BIDEN TODAY: That's why I and so damn many other people I grew up with have cancer."
SkyNews reported saying, a White House spokesperson quickly clarified that Biden was referring to having non-melanoma skin cancers removed before he started his presidency.
