Twins GM Ryan out of hospital after cancer surgery

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Twins general manager Terry Ryan has been released from the hospital, the first step in his recovery from cancer surgery.

The Twins announced Friday that Ryan left the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, three days after the operation. According to team spokesman Dustin Morse, Ryan told team physician Dr. Vijay Eyunni that he was "doing well." Ryan will spend the next few days recuperating at home in the Twin Cities. There's no timetable for his return to work.

Ryan was recently diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, after a cancerous lump was found in a lymph node in his neck. Radiation is the likely next phase of his treatment.
