STAMFORD, Conn. — Stamford Mayor David Martin will undergo minor surgery for melanoma early next week. The diagnosis and surgery will not affect his work as mayor, he told reporters Thursday morning.

“I will be treated with surgery this coming week to remove melanoma in situ," Martin said. He said his prognosis was "excellent" and called the melanoma a "stage-zero" cancer.

Martin said he will undergo the surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Tuesday. He does not expect to stay at the hospital overnight.
