After discovering a large tumor on his neck last year, Fox News host Dan Bongino announced to his fans that he received a Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis from his doctors — a scary moment for everyone.
However, according to the Washington Examiner, on the heels of successfully completing treatment for the condition the popular podcaster and cable news personality revealed that a mass discovered on his lungs was not a tumor, which was revealed this week by Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Bongino told Hannity and the viewing audience how relieved he was to learn that just weeks after wrapping up a successful treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the new mass was not the kind that would have sent him straight back to cancer treatment.
“I had a mass in one of my lungs that was detected just weeks after completing treatment for my Hodgkin’s lymphoma,” Bongino said. “After some imaging, it looks like some scarring and doesn’t appear to be another tumor. I’m relieved.”
As any other cancer survivor is subject to after successful treatment, Bongino added that he’ll likely have several more appointments with his cancer specialists as a precautionary observation to make sure nothing else flares up that could be dangerous.
Hannity, one of Bongino’s close friends at the network, gleefully revealed Bongino’s new, healthy outcome.
“Dan, obviously, you’ve been very public about some health struggles. He’s gotten a clean bill of health. I couldn’t be happier for my friend, my fellow warrior. And thank you, God, that you’re OK,” Hannity said.
The former U.S. Secret Service agent thanked Hannity for his kind words and indicated that he felt good and happy, pointing out that he was all smiles in the wake of the extremely fortunate news.
Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a type of lymphatic cancer that can crop up anywhere in the body and is prone to spreading. One of the classic and most common symptoms can be swollen lymph nodes in the neck, groin or under the arm. Thank goodness Bongino is now clear of any further symptoms.
