JACKSON -- A Republican congressman from north Mississippi is scheduled for surgery Monday to remove a small mass found on his brain. 


Rep. Alan Nunnelee was hospitalized in May after experiencing nausea and fatigue, with doctors finding what Nunnelee describes as an intracranial mass on the right side of his brain. 


Thursday, he said in a statement that further tests at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston had confirmed the mass was "isolated." The 55-year-old says his staff will keep him informed of constituent and legislative business during his recovery. Nunnelee didn't say how long recovery would take. 


Nunnelee says constituents deserve to know about his condition. He served several years in the state Senate before being elected to the U.S. House in 2010. He is seeking re-election.
