Romney reportedly treated for prostate cancer previous year

Romney's aide disclosed that the former governor of MA was surgically treated by Dr. Thomas Ahlering at UC Irvine Hospital.

Onetime Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was treated for prostate cancer previous year, according to multiple reports Monday.

Mitt Romney speaks to members of the media after their meeting with President-elect Donald Trump at the main clubhouse at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., on November 19, 2016. Trump wished Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, the best of luck in his future endeavors.

But Hatch announced recently he would retire, opening the door to a Romney candidacy.

Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox and Utah billionaire/philanthropist Jon Huntsman Sr. have likewise encouraged Romney to run and Hatch himself earlier had said he would have stepped aside for Romney. Romney was reportedly discussing running for the now open Senate seat in 2018 if Hatch retired.

Romney advisers say the 70-year-old former governor of MA is weighing a run in the November congressional election for a Senate seat from Utah, a Republican-dominated state where Romney has a home.

Editor's note: Jon Huntsman Sr.is the father of Paul Huntsman, the owner and publisher of The Salt Lake Tribune. Romney criticized Trump during the 2016 GOP primary season, giving a major speech in which he called the GOP frontrunner a "fraud" and a "phony" and begging the party to nominate a different candidate.

Romney, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, has declined to confirm whether he's considering a Senate run.
