Bruce Jenner has reportedly undergone a second operation for skin cancer.

The Olympian-turned-reality star was spotted this week with a bandage covering his nose, where he is said to have had cancerous tissue removed.

Monday’s procedure entailed receiving 30 stitches, according to TMZ, and is likely to leave a scar.

Doctors reportedly attribute Jenner’s cancer to sun exposure.

A rep did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation.

As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Jenner previously had a cancerous growth removed from the side of his face in January 2012.

We wish him a speedy — and lasting — recovery.
