Herman Cain said he will make a final decision on whether or not he will continue his 2012 presidential run one week from now.

Cain, whose campaign has been riddled with controversy amid accusations of sexual harassment and an affair, said in an interview with Fox News Wednesday he hasn't set a specific time to announce his decision.

"It will be several days. I haven't set an exact time yet," Cain told "Your World" host Neil Cavuto.

On Tuesday, Cain said he was "reassessing" his campaign amid allegations of an affair and sexual harassment. Cain told Fox News he was reconsidering the course of his campaign because the accusations have put a strain on his family.

"This is why we are reassessing and the answer is yes, it is constantly weighing on me and my family, especially my family, because it continues to stir in the news," Cain said. "This is why we are going through the reassessment.

"It is having a toll and anybody would do the same thing," Cain continued.

A total of five women have accused Cain of inappropriate behavior. Ginger White, the most recent woman to step forward with accusations about Cain, said she engaged in a 13-year extramarital affair with the Republican presidential candidate.

Though he told Fox News White's announcement was "totally out of the blue," Cain broke the story himself before White could come forward, denying "an affair for a specified period of time" on CNN the morning before White went public.
