Conservative star Dan Bongino reveals cancer diagnosis

Conservative political commentator and outspoken Trump supporter Dan Bongino announced on Friday that he has been diagnosed with cancer after doctors discovered a tumor in his neck last month.

Bongino, who frequently appears on Fox News, told fans on Friday that he “did get a diagnosis yesterday from my doctor. … Unfortunately, it is cancer. It’s lymphoma, the Hodgkin’s type. But it is treatable.”

Bongino first alerted his fans to the possibility of a cancer diagnosis in September, after revealing that concerned audience-members had alerted him about what appeared to be an abnormal growth on his neck.

After seeking medical attention in late September, Bongino told fans that the doctors had found a tumor near his vocal cords.

“It’s a tumor, but there’s a strong likelihood that it is not cancerous,” Bongino told his fans at the time, adding that his medical team believed there was a strong chance that it wasn’t cancerous. “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.”

The tumor was successfully removed earlier this month, though Bongino tweeted on October 7 that he had received “bad news” that it “looks like lymphoma.”

“I do have cancer, and that is hard for me to say,” the 45-year-old said on Friday. “But we’ll be OK, and I am optimistic. That’s not some act I’m putting on for the show.”

Bongino served as a Secret Service agent during the Obama administration before retiring to run for public office. After several unsuccessful attempts, Bongino began hosting the Dan Bongino Show, a popular weekday podcast in which he discusses relevant political happenings.

Bongino also recently launched the Bongino Report, a competitor to the now-liberal Drudge Report, a news aggregation site that played a major role in Donald Trump’s election in 2016. A vocal critic of the mainstream media and the so-called “deep state,” Bongino has dedicated much energy to exposing the Obama administration’s interference in the 2016 election.

  1. Dan, I am so sorry to hear that you have cancer. A good bit of cancer has run through my family. I have never had it, but frequently wonder if this or that may be cancer. We cannot make decisions re our unexpected health, but we can pray, we can ask for forgiveness, we can empathize with others in the same boat and in some cases in worse shape that we are in. The good Lord takes care of us and He will take care of you. Hang in there, try to view the world as great, and above all, thank God that He has you and you have Him. Many, MANY of us love you.

Hugs to you and your family May God protect you all at this tim.
