Dalrymple has growth removed

BISMARCK (AP) -- North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple said he recently had a BB-sized growth removed from the tip of his nose.

Dalrymple said the procedure, which he said was performed by his dermatologist, was to remove "a benign thing."

His spokesman, Jeff Zent, said Thursday that the governor's doctor had "assured him it's nothing serious.

"It's all gone and the doctor did give him a clean bill of health," Zent said.

Dalrymple has been wearing bandages on his nose since the growth was removed Monday. He said he should be able to remove the bandages soon.
