ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- State Sen. Roger Manno says he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in September, and is free of the disease after undergoing surgery.
The Montgomery County Democrat said Monday in an email to supporters that he learned he had cancer after a biopsy in September.
Manno says two weeks ago he underwent "aggressive" surgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore to remove the cancer.
He says he is recovering at home, and is "100 percent cancer free."
The 49-year-old Manno was elected to the state Senate in 2010, after serving four years in the House of Delegates.
