Bruce Jenner underwent surgery for skin cancer.

The ex-Olympian - who had a similar procedure in 2012 on the side of his face - has had a chunk of cancerous tissue removed from his nose, requiring 30 stitches, according to TMZ.

His cancer scare has been attributed to sun damage caused by hours of playing golf in the Californian sun.

Bruce - who is married to Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner - was recently spotted in Calabasas, California, sporting a bandage on his nose.

A source said: ''Bruce will probably have a big scar on his nose'', but he is ''doing OK now''.

The 63-year-old star is no stranger to surgery.

In a past episode of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians', he admitted to having plastic surgery in his mid-thirties.

Bruce opted for a nose job and partial facelift following advice from a doctor 25 years ago, but he later considered the surgery to be botched.

The father-of-six said: ''If you Google my name, the worst plastic surgeries of all time, or whatever it is, they've compared me to Michael Jackson.''

The reality TV star decided to have corrective surgery three years ago and later disclosed that his botched makeover in the 1980s was a secret and hinted that he wasn't in a stable frame of mind at the time.
