Congressman's son being treated for tumor



Patrick Young, the 21-year-old son of Rep. C.W. Bill Young, is being treated for a tumor behind one of his lungs.

Rep. Young said the family was awaiting test results before doctors try to remove the tumor. He said his son is on blood pressure medicine to reduce the chances of complications when it is removed.

The congressman said he is optimistic about Patrick's recovery. "He'll be fine," Young said. "We'll get through this."
