Mitt Romney Was Treated For Prostate Cancer Over The Summer

Prognosis 'good'

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was treated for prostate cancer over the summer, CNN reported today.

According to the report, which cited an unnamed source, Romney was “treated surgically.” The source described Romney’s prognosis as “good” and said he was “successfully treated.”

A source close to Romney confirmed to the Globe that the CNN report was accurate.

Romney has been the focus of heightened speculation that he’ll run for US Senate in Utah in the wake of Senator Orrin Hatch’s announcement that he’ll retire at the end of his term this year.
