Commentator and radio host Dan Bongino revealed on Friday that he has been diagnosed with cancer following surgery for a lump in his neck.
Dan Bongino, 45, had already undergone surgery to remove the lump, which he first felt was just a lipoma.
He announced that “it looks like lymphoma” following the surgery and confirmed the diagnosis on his talk show “The Dan Bongino Show.”
“We did get a diagnosis yesterday from my doctor … unfortunately, it is cancer,” Bongino announced. “It’s lymphoma, the Hodgkin’s type, but it is treatable. Feel like I owe you an update, we’re gonna leave it there. Nothing to be depressed about, there’s a treatment plan.”
“Everybody’s got their obstacles … But, I do have cancer, and that is hard for me to say, but we’ll be okay and I am optimistic, that’s not some act I’m putting on for the show,” he added before praising his family and fans.
Dan Bongino said he has a strong support system from his family, friends, and the “best audience in the business.”
The former Secret Service agent and New York Police Department officer told his audience late last month that he had been diagnosed with a “very scary” tumor in his neck.
Dan Bongino quickly received a strong outpouring of support and well wishes on Twitter from colleagues and friends in the media.
Earlier this month, the tumor was successfully removed, and Bongino shared with his audience that he feared he had lymphoma.
