NEW YORK (AP) — Major League Soccer says that Commissioner Don Garber is being treated for prostate cancer, and doctors expect he will make a full recovery

The 56-year-old Garber has undergone a series of comprehensive tests, and the cancer hasn't spread, MLS said Saturday. Garber will undergo surgery following treatment.

"Obviously no one wants to hear that they have cancer," Garber said in a statement. "However, I am being treated by exceptional doctors at two of the top hospitals in the world and am confident, as are they, that the prostate cancer will be successfully treated, with a full recovery.

"I plan on keeping a normal schedule and will continue managing the league and Soccer United Marketing during my course of treatment. With the support of my family, friends, colleagues and doctors, I am feeling very strong, energized and extremely focused."
