AP source Romney treated for prostate cancer

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney speaks after a dinner meeting with U.S. President-elect Donald Trump at Jean-Georges inside of the Trump International Hotel & Tower in NY, U.S., November 29, 2016.

One Romney aide said that he "was diagnosed with slow-growing prostate cancer". "The cancer was removed surgically and found not to have spread beyond the prostate". Though he has not announced his future political plans, Romney is widely expected to mount a run later for the Senate seat being vacated at the end of this year by the retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, who recently said he would retire. "His prognosis is good; he was successfully treated".

The former MA governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee has not made any public statements about whether he plans to run for Senate.

The person said Romney still had not made up his mind to run for the seat, but he is being encouraged by a variety of friends and supporters in Utah. He unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination for president in 2008. Trump and Romney spoke by phone last week.

Trump briefly considered Romney for the post of Secretary of State but eventually decided on Rex Tillerson in the later stages of the transition.

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