The White House did not explain what led Mrs. Trump to seek treatment or whether the "benign kidney condition" meant she had a benign tumor or something else. "Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania". Will be leaving hospital in 2 or 3 days. "Thank you to all of the well-wishers!" he tweeted.
Dr. Schrader can't speak specifically to why Mrs. Trump had an embolization, but she says the procedure can be used to address an abnormal blood vessel, growths or tumors, and abnormal cists.
It's possible that the first lady had a benign mass on her kidney, or an angiomyolipoma, said Dr. Nicole Saphier of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, according to a May 15 Fox News report.
Pence said he spoke for "people everywhere when I say that Mrs. Trump is in our hearts". He said he expected the first lady back home at the White House before the end of the week.
Twitter to hide comments identified as 'trolling' from users
Twitter announced Tuesday that it will implement new changes aimed at downplaying the visibility of " trolls " on its platform. Any of their interactions will be invisible to users unless they press the "show more replies" button under a tweet.
First lady Melania Trump is continuing her recovery in the hospital following a kidney-related procedure Monday that her office said was long-planned. Many times, embolization patients go home the same day or the next.
Though the President remained at the White House during the surgery, he traveled to the hospital in Marine One in the evening, where he visited with his wife for over an hour.
Mrs. Trump has, at times, has been noticeably absent from her husband's side but both made a point of displaying affection during last week's Rose Garden event. They have a 12-year-old son named Barron. Her office said in a statement that there were no complications.
Thanking all the well wishers, Trump said that his wife will be released within two or three days.
