You might have seen the photo making the rounds today: Bruce Jenner sporting a scar on the side of his face during last night's Lakers-Mavericks game.

While several blogs theorized the Keeping Up With the Kardashians patriarch and former Olympic champ might have gotten some new cosmetic surgery, sources close to the family tell E! News that's not the case.

Instead, the scar is the result of a procedure Jenner had to remove skin cancer. So what the prognosis?

Jenner went to a dermatologist on Friday after discovering a red tab on his face. The doctor removed the lesion and a biopsy showed that it was skin cancer.

Fortuately for Jenner, he caught the skin cancer in time and will be all right.

Now he just has to stick to the SPF 1000 while hitting the greens.
