US treasury boss Lew to undergo prostate surgery
(03-24 20:27)

US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew will undergo surgery Tuesday in New York to treat a benign enlarged prostate.
The outpatient procedure will keep him at home for the rest of the week, after which he should be able to resume duties, a spokeswoman said Sunday.
Eight days before the scheduled operation, Lew was treated at a Mexico City hospital for what the Treasury called "a minor medical issue.''
Lew, 58, has served as treasury secretary for the past year after replacing Timothy Geithner in early 2013.--AFP
