Sen. Dodd has prostate cancer
Sen. Christopher J Dodd told that he had prostate cancer. The cancer was in an early treatable form that he would go ahead with the re-election campaign. He disclosed the fact on Friday. Dodd 65 has a five year term.
It was found out during a blood test for the annual check up. A biopsy was done after that and it confirmed the prostate cancer.
He is expected to undergo an operation to remove the prostate in this month. He would take a few weeks to recover at home.
He attended the office with his wife and opined that the cancer is a very slow-growing and best one to have because it is manageable. He formed this opinion by discussing it with the doctors while he was under treatment.
Mr. Dodd’s announcement was a surprise to the politicians and it gained sympathy of many people. It has made all the questions unimportant regarding how the cancer will affect his politics.
