Mitt Romney - who is said to be eyeing a bid for U.S. Senate from Utah - was treated last summer for prostate cancer, two sources close to the former presidential candidate told NBC News Monday.

An aide said Romney was surgically treated by Dr. Thomas Ahlering at UC Irvine Hospital.

"Mitt Romney was treated over the summer for prostate cancer", this person said.

The fact that news of his prostate cancer treatment emerged now could be an indication that Romney will run for office.

Romeny updated his location on his Twitter profile after Hatch's retirement announcement, in a move widely seen as preparatory for a Senate run.

Romney delivered a now famous speech decrying Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign and actively worked to deny the president the Republican nomination.

"I join the people of Utah in thanking my friend, Senator Orrin Hatch for his more than forty years of service to our great state and nation", Romney said.

Romney was considered by Trump to serve as secretary of state a year ago, but the president passed him over for now-Secretary Rex Tillerson.

Romney, 70, is in good heath and went skiing with family in recent days, this person said. But when discovered early, before it has spread beyond the prostate, as apparently was the case with Romney, the survival rate is almost 100 percent, according to a database maintained by the National Cancer Institute.
