Gov. Jerry Brown has undergone surgery to remove a cancerous growth on his nose, his office said Saturday.

The governor's office said in a statement that Brown, 73, had the procedure under local anesthetic Friday, after tests revealed the presence of basal cell carcinoma, a common, slow-growing form of skin cancer, on the right side of his nose.
