US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin was treated under general anesthesia for bladder issues, as he battles prostate cancer, his doctors say, adding that he will be ready to resume work duties shortly.

“A prolonged hospital stay is not anticipated. We anticipate the secretary will be able to resume his normal duties tomorrow,” his doctors say in a statement.

“The current bladder issue is not expected to change his anticipated full recovery. His cancer prognosis remains excellent.”
