KINGSTON, N.Y. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Maurice Hinchey says he's being treated for curable colon cancer.

The Democrat from New York's Hudson Valley says doctors expect a full recovery. He'll continue to work while he undergoes care.

Hinchey's office said Friday that he's receiving radiation treatment in Kingston. He will have surgery in Albany during the congressional recess in June, followed by a brief course of chemotherapy.

Hinchey will work and travel to Washington for votes during his treatment.

His doctor says the cancer was diagnosed early and that it isn't expected to spread beyond the colon.
