Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd revealed Friday that he has been diagnosed with an early stage of prostate cancer. Read more on Senator Dodd below.

Chris Dodd said he will have surgery in early August, but the prognosis is good and the illness will not affect his plans to seek a sixth term next year.

Dodd said he was actually diagnosed about six weeks ago during his annual physical, but said he feels OK and is “very confident we’re going to come out of this well.”

“I’m running for re-election,” he told reporters at his Hartford office. “I’ll be a little leaner, a little meaner, but I’m running.”

Prostate cancer is the most common form of the disease in men in the United States, affecting about 6.4 out of every 100 men in Dodd’s age group, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Christopher Dodd is married to Jackie Clegg and they have two daughters.
