WASHINGTON (AP) -

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill says she has breast cancer.
    
The Democratic senator tweeted about the diagnosis on Monday. 

McCaskill said in a blog post that the cancer was detected through a regular mammogram and she will be in St. Louis for the next three weeks receiving treatment. She said "it's a little scary" but her prognosis is good and she expects a full recovery.
    
McCaskill said she will post on her website how she would have voted on any matters that come before the Senate while she is gone.
