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.
