U.S. Rep. Jim Hagedorn says cancer has returned



Rep. Jim Hagedorn, shown in 2020, said his kidney cancer has returned.

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jim Hagedorn said Wednesday his kidney cancer has returned, just months after he shared a positive development about his health with the public.

"Be assured, I will continue to fight for America and serve the people of Minnesota's First Congressional District with the highest level of energy and enthusiasm," Hagedorn said in a statement. "I remain upbeat and view the future as bright."

The Republican, who represents southern Minnesota, learned he had stage 4 kidney cancer in February 2019. He had elective surgery in December 2020 to remove a kidney and nearby cancerous tissues, according to an earlier statement from his office. In a speech on the House floor in March, Hagedorn said his doctor told him that there was "no cancer detected at this time."
