Dan Bongino underwent surgery to remove a tumor from his neck. The procedure went well but the former New York Police Department and Secret Service agent is afraid he could have lymphoma. Bongino shared the news to Twitter on Wednesday.
"Thank you all for your kind words & well wishes. I’m out of surgery & I feel good. They removed the entire tumor from my neck. The bad news is, it looks like lymphoma," he tweeted. "The good news is, there are treatments options. Either way, it’ll be okay. Thank you all for your support."
Bongino revealed last month on his radio show that he had been diagnosed with a tumor.
"It’s a tumor, but there’s a strong likelihood that it is not cancerous," Bongino said, at the time. "We don’t know what it is. It’s in a very weird spot in my neck near my carotid artery, near vocal cords and things, and it is big. It's 7 centimeters ... It’s scary."
Bongino recalled feeling shaken when he saw the look on his doctor's face after an MRI.
"I noticed when I came out of the MRI machine that the look on the doctor’s face changed a little bit as he told me in the room inside that it is not a lipoma. Which was very scary."
He then quoted American novelist Bernard Malamud.
"We have two lives," he said. "The life we learn with and the life we live after that, and the genuine path to happiness is through suffering."
