Congressman Alan Nunnelee, R-Miss., has been released from the hospital.
The 1st District leader was admitted Thursday with a suspicious spot on his brain, a day after feeling nausea and fatigue.
In a press release, Nunnelee said doctors found a “small intracranial mass,” which “appears to be an isolated problem that can be remedied through surgery.”
Nunnelee added that he will remain in Washington, D.C., through the weekend for additional outpatient tests and hopes to come back to Mississippi early next week to help with tornado recovery efforts.
“I first want to say that my family and I greatly appreciate all of your kind prayers, thoughts, and well-wishes,” Nunnelee said. “We are also truly grateful for the care and advice that the medical staff from the House of Representatives and George Washington University provided.”
The second-term congressman serves on the House Appropriations Committee and the House Budget Committee.
