TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The office of New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg says the 86-year-old Democrat has stomach cancer.

Spokesman Caley Gray says doctors for the nation’s second-oldest U.S. senator found B-cell lymphoma of the stomach. His office says the tumor is “curable” and will require treatment over the next few months.

Dr. James Holland of New York City’s Mount Sinai Medical Center says Lautenberg will receive six to eight chemotherapy treatments. The doctor says he expects a “full and complete recovery.”

Lautenberg was taken to the hospital Monday after his office said he fell. The office said Tuesday the senator was treated for a bleeding ulcer.
