Doctor gives Beau Biden clean bill of health

DOVER, Del. - February 24, 2014

The News Journal reports Dr. W.K. Alfred Yung from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center released a statement Friday saying Biden had a flawless surgery Aug. 20 to remove "a small lesion." Yung says he examined Biden again Nov. 11 and gave him "a clean bill of health."

Biden has made few public appearances since being hospitalized in August. But he attended the governor's State of the State speech last month.

Lawmakers and other officials noted Biden has lost weight and has a scar on the side of his head.
