- Democratic Michigan Rep. Dan Kildee has been diagnosed with skin cancer, he announced Friday.
- “A few weeks ago, after consulting with doctors, I scheduled what I thought was a preventative scan for a swollen lymph node. The results, it turned out, were much more serious. After additional testing, I’ve been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, a serious but curable form of cancer. Thankfully, I caught it very early. With early detection and great doctors, they found a very small tumor in one of my tonsils,” he said in a statement.
- Kildee added that he will undergo surgery and take “a few weeks” to recover. His office will remain open to serve constituents, he said.
