MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey says she will begin radiation treatments at UAB Hospital in Birmingham after a “tiny, isolated malignancy” was found on one of her lungs.

“Naturally, I welcome your prayers and your support," Ivey said in a statement. "Just as so many others who have been affected by cancer, I am confident of God’s plan and purpose for my life and feel extremely fortunate this was caught so early.”

Ivey said the spot was found by her longtime family physician during a routine exam within the last several weeks.

Dr. William P. Saliski, Jr., with Montgomery Pulmonary Consultants, confirmed Ivey was referred to him to review the abnormal spot and performed a biopsy to determine what it was.

“Upon consultation with our cancer team and reviewing all options available, Governor Ivey determined that these minimal radiation treatments are her preference,” the doctor said. "Governor Ivey has opted for the least invasive treatment which has an excellent cure rate. I expect her to make a full recovery.”
