NEW YORK (AP) — Fox News personality John Stossel says he is being treated for lung cancer.

In a commentary posted Wednesday on the Fox News website, Stossel wrote that his doctors have told him his cancer was "caught early" and that he'll be "fine." He said one-fifth of a lung was removed, but said he was told that soon he would "barely notice" the loss.

Stossel described his medical care at New York-Presbyterian Hospital as "excellent," but speaking in his role as a consumer reporter, added that "the hospital's customer service stinks."

He spent the bulk of the opinion piece listing lapses in the hospital's service in the absence of a free-market system for health care.

New York-Presbyterian Hospital had no immediate response.

Stossel appears on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network.
