U.S. Rep. Phil Roe is cancer-free, his office announced on Friday.

An email from Roe spokeswoman Tiffany Haverly said he underwent a “successful medical procedure” late last month to deal with his cancer diagnosis.

“At his follow-up appointment, Congressman Roe’s scans were clear and he is cancer-free,” Haverly’s email noted. “He looks forward to finishing his recovery and returning to a full schedule soon. The congressman thanks East Tennesseans for the outpouring of support and prayers he has received through his treatment and his medical team for the excellent care he received.”

Following a routine physical examination, Congressman Roe was diagnosed last month with early-stage prostate cancer.
