"I'm looking forward to driving in 2020," said Bennet on Sunday at CNN's "Union of Union" with Jake Tapper. "It was, of course, unexpected, but we caught it early. It's something I think we can handle, and I don't think it should keep me off track."
Bennet said in his CNN interview that he would get a procedure during the recess, then there would be a few weeks of recovery time, "but I would like to move on with this."
Bennet also said he had no symptoms and advised people to be screened.
"I feel so good this week as last week and the week before," said Bennet. "And there is no way I would know I had prostate cancer if I hadn't screened."
Asked about CNN's health care break from many announced candidates, Bennet said he wanted to maintain "choices" for people on the health market.
"What Colorado families want is the maximum choice for themselves and their families," Bennet said. "They want a robust and strong public opportunity because not everyone wants to be subject to private insurance."
