Lloyd Austin, the US Secretary of Defense, was hospitalized with suspected bladder problems. The Pentagon press secretary announced this news in a statement that said Austin was taken to Walter Reed for evaluation due to symptoms consistent with bladder problems. Although he is in the hospital, Austin continues to perform his duties and has access to all communication channels.
In January, Austin was released from the hospital after treatment for prostate cancer, which was diagnosed at an early stage. He had undergone a prostatectomy on December 22 and experienced complications that led to readmission to the hospital on January 1. At 70 years old, Austin has been serving as the head of the Pentagon since January 2021. His health has been closely monitored since then.
