Bruce Jenner is going to be just fine.

The former Olympian and Keeping Up with the Kardashians patriarch, 62, underwent surgery on Friday to remove a cancerous growth from his face, a source confirms to Us Weekly.

TMZ first reported the news, noting that Jenner visited the dermatologist after noticing a red mark on his face -- which, following a biopsy, proved to be cancerous.

Married to Kris Jenner, the father to Brody, Kendall and Kylie Jenner -- and stepfather to Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob Kardashian -- has been advised to stay covered up when he goes out in the sun.
