STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Scott Paterno says his 84-year-old father has a treatable form of lung cancer in a statement provided to The Associated Press by a family representative:

"Last weekend my father was diagnosed with a treatable form of lung cancer during a follow-up visit for a bronchial illness. He is currently undergoing treatment and his doctors are optimistic that he will make a full recovery. As everyone can appreciate, this is a deeply personal matter for my parents, and we simply ask that his privacy be respected as he proceeds with treatment.
