Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, says he’ll start chemotherapy treatment for cancer in the next few months while continuing his work leading the tax-writing panel.

“After a recent routine yearly physical, it was discovered that I have a very early, highly treatable and curable type of non-Hodgkins lymphoma,” the Michigan Republican said Saturday in an e-mailed statement. “Thankfully, my health is otherwise excellent, and my doctors and I expect a full recovery and cure.”

The treatment for “large B-cell lymphoma” will consist of sessions every three weeks, said Camp, 59, whose committee also has jurisdiction over the federal health-care law upheld by the Supreme Court on June 28.

Camp, who is married with three children, says he will continue in Congress and retain his committee chairmanship during his chemotherapy.

The 11-term congressman has said he wants to combine a push to head off pending tax increases with ways to force Congress to revamp the tax code next year.
