Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew is scheduled to undergo surgery to "treat a benign enlarged prostate" in New York Tuesday.

Lew, 58, visited a hospital while on last week's trip to Mexico. Following the surgery, Lew will spend the rest of this week recovering in New York before returning to Washington, his office said.

A person familiar with the situation said Lew's physicians confirmed the secretary does not have prostate cancer.
