Hogan sported three small, flesh-colored bandages on his forehead during a redistricting reform news conference Thursday.

The bandages were the result of a minor procedure Thursday morning to remove what was described as three small skin lesions at a dermatologist’s office. The lesions were said to be the result of “sun damage,” according to Douglass Mayer, a Hogan spokesman.,

Mayer said  he could not release additional information, citing privacy concerns.

In 2015 Hogan underwent six months of cancer treatments in a battle against an aggressive form of B-cell Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He declared himself “100 percent cancer free” in November of that year but continued to undergo maintenance treatments for a time after that announcement.

Last month, Hogan joined  governors from Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Texas in signing a proclamation declaring a cancer screening week.
