Clinton gets the good news on cyst: It's non-cancerous

A cyst removed from President Clinton's chest Friday was not cancerous, the White House says.

Press secretary Mike McCurry said the president got the good news from his doctors Monday.The cyst was removed during the president's annual physical. Doctors said at the time they suspected it was benign.

The half-inch cyst was similar to one removed last year from Clinton's neck and found benign, Dr. David Corbett said Friday.
