Bruce - who is married to Kris Jenner and stepdad to her children, including Kim Kardashian - is now recovering after having surgery last week.

He had cancerous tissue removed from his nose, requiring 30 stitches, which is part of ongoing treatment and is actually the second procedure this year. The previous one being on his cheek to remove a cancerous lesion.

Last week, fans became concerned when he was pictured with a heavily bandaged nose.
