BOSTON (CBS) — Mayor Tom Menino will undergo surgery Friday for an enlarged prostate.
It’s just the latest in a series of health issues for the mayor.
Menino’s spokesperson says the mayor does not have cancer and should be out of the hospital a few days after surgery.
Health issues contributed to Menino’s decision not to run for a sixth term.
When asked if he would consider stepping down, Menino gave an emphatic “no.”
“I’d never consider that at all,” Menino said.
