Embolizations are often conducted to treat cancerous tumors, but Grisham said the 48-year-old first lady's kidney condition was "benign".

Dr. Joseph A. Vassalotti, the chief medical officer at the National Kidney Foundation, said his guess was that Mrs. Trump had either a benign tumor known as an angiomyolipoma or a bleeding cyst. "The first lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere", she continued.

The president tweeted shortly before arriving at Walter Reed outside Washington, saying it was a "successful procedure, " describing his wife as being "in good spirits" and offering his thanks "to all of the well-wishers!"
