ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan says he has a “very advanced and very aggressive cancer.”

Hogan says the cancer is B-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He says it may be Stage 4, or at least a very advanced Stage 3.

He spoke at a news conference Monday afternoon in Annapolis, surrounded by members of his family and cabinet.

Hogan, a Republican who took office in January, says he’s “shocked” by the news.

He says he’s been feeling good and has had few symptoms, but has tumors, a low appetite and some pain. Chemotherapy treatment is planned.

Hogan says his doctors have told him he has a good chance of beating the disease. He joked it was higher, though, than his underdog chances of beating his Democratic opponent in last fall’s election.
