U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee of Mississippi, who was diagnosed with brain cancer last year, has been told by doctors he has a new tumor and it is inoperable, a spokesman for the Republican congressman said on Friday.

Nunnelee, 56, who was elected to his third term in November, suffered a stroke while in surgery to remove a tumor in June.

"After seven months of bravely fighting brain cancer and a stroke, Congressman Alan Nunnelee was informed last Friday that a new tumor has developed and no further medical treatment is possible," Morgan Baldwin, a longtime Nunnelee consultant, said in a statement.

"On Monday of this week, Alan came home and is resting comfortably with family." He lives in Tupelo.

A fiscal and social conservative, Nunnelee served in the Mississippi state Senate 15 years before being elected to Congress in 2010, unseating Democrat .

The congressman has a seat on the powerful House Appropriations Committee and the Republican Study Committee.
