Mandelslime Has Operation For Benign Condition Of Prostate

Recommended Posts

Lord Mandelson has been admitted to hospital to have an operation for a "benign condition of the prostate", a government spokesman has said.

The business secretary, 55, is in St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, west London, and it is expected he will remain in overnight.

A Department for Business, Innovation and Skills spokesman said it was a "routine operation".

Last week, Lord Mandelson stood in for the prime minister who was on holiday.

Lord Mandelson returned to the British government last year after serving as European Union trade commissioner.

He is known as the "comeback king" of British politics and was appointed to one of the most powerful jobs in Europe after being sacked twice from the cabinet.

Benign growth of the prostate is common and around one in three men over the age of 50 suffer symptoms due to an enlarged prostate.

Treatment is not always necessary, as the symptoms, such as difficulty passing urine, can often be very mild.

Medication can help but surgery to reduce the size of the prostate is offered in more severe cases.

Can't wait for Juvenal's caption competition............
