Senate Majority Leader Kari Dziedzic, DFL-Minneapolis, said she plans to return to the Capitol soon.

Senate Majority Leader Kari Dziedzic said she had successful surgery at the University of Minnesota on Monday to remove a cancerous tumor and she plans to return to the Capitol soon.

Dziedzic, DFL-Minneapolis, issued a statement late Tuesday saying that she'd had an abnormal pap smear in December and that additional tests revealed she has cancer. On Friday, her doctors determined that she should have surgery on Monday, her statement said.

The senator didn't indicate where the tumor was or whether she will need additional treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation. She was able to vote from home Tuesday.
