Dr. David Samadi: Successful Prostate Cancer Surgery of Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney, the former Republican presidential candidate, happily released to the press that he had undergone a prostate surgery. During the last summer, he had suffered from a tumor that grew slowly and was further diagnosed with prostate cancer. The announcement of his health condition may able be done as his intent to continue running for the US Senate seat for Utah when Orrin Hatch leaves the position.

The surgery was a success because of the team of Dr. Thomas Ahlering. The procedure was done in the UC Irvine Hospital in California. The prognosis was noted to be very positive, even as a part of that statistic that 160,000 men were diagnosed with the same condition in 2017. The statistics seem steady for 2018, as American Cancer Society has estimated that there will be additional 160,000 for the year.
