Bruce Jenner

Nose Mystery Solved ...

It's Skin Cancer

EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner underwent surgery for skin cancer on his nose earlier this week ... TMZ has learned.

Our Kardashian-Jenner family sources tell us Bruce had a chunk of tissue removed from his nose on Monday ... and the procedure required 30 stitches.

Bruce was spotted with some serious bandages while getting his morning coffee Tuesday in Calabasas -- and everyone's been wondering what the deal is.

We're told doctors attribute the cancer to sun damage -- remember, Bruce plays a lot of golf.

Bruce underwent the same procedure back in 2012 -- that time the cancerous tissue was on the side of his face -- and docs warned him to use better protection.

0919-bruce-jenner-scar-2012 We're told Bruce is doing okay now, but he "will probably have a big scar on his nose."

All the best to Bruce and his recovery. With the lack of the ozone layer, the sun is lethal. Like Woody said in "Annie Hall", 'Everything our parents told us was good for us was bad. Milk, college, the sun.'

A little un-nerving for now, but thank goodness medicine is so advanced and new skin from the patient's own skin cells is grown in the lab and he may opt for having his nose reconstructed.
Stay strong Bruce you will get thru this, a lot of people think your a good person and will be sending prayers and good energy towards you.

Yeah, OK. Bruce Jenner has had more plastic surgery than most females. Look at his face. The man can't even smile anymore because of all the botox. Maybe his nose was starting to look it's age so he decided to have it "fixed". Yeah, that's what I'm thinking.
