MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — A western Minnesota prosecutor is preparing to return to work, months after doctors discovered a tumor on his pituitary gland.

Clay County Attorney Brian Melton was sidelined by a bout of encephalitis and the tumor while serving with the Minnesota National Guard in Kuwait last February.

Doctors placed Melton in a medically induced coma and treated him at military hospitals in Germany and Washington, D.C.

Melton returns to work Monday. He tells KFGO-AM that doctors at the Mayo Clinic are assessing his tumor, and that sooner or later, surgery will be required.
