Mitt Romney treated for prostate cancer over the summer; prognosis is good

Mitt Romney treated for prostate cancer over the summer prognosis is good

The former MA governor and GOP presidential nominee's prognosis is "good", CNN reported.

According to the aide, the cancer was removed surgically and found not to have spread beyond the prostate.

An aide said Romney was surgically treated by Dr. Thomas Ahlering at UC Irvine Hospital. "He was treated successfully".

Romney, the 70-year-old former governor of MA, is being widely encouraged to run for Utah Sen.

News of Romney's health scare comes after Utah Senator Orrin Hatch announced he would not run for reelection in the Fall.

Gaz wrote that Romney had a mild enlargement of the prostate and that his family has a history of prostate cancer.


Romney is 70 years old. Hatch announced last week he would retire from the Senate. Romney owns homes in both states.

Romney was MA governor from 2003 to 2007.

Romney and President Trump have had a tumultuous relationship. He unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for president in 2008.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Romney called Trump "a fraud" who has "neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president", reports the Daily Mail.

Fox News also confirmed the diagnosis and treatment. He joined FNC in 1997 as a Los Angeles-based correspondent.
