WOODBRIDGE — Mayor Frank G. Pelzman said yesterday that he has been diagnosed with cancer and will begin immediate treatment.

The 71-year-old mayor said the illness will not deter him from his daily duties.

“I feel fine, the same as I felt two months ago,” Pelzman said in a written statement. “The municipal business of Woodbridge Township will continue as before.”

Pelzman was admitted to the JFK Medical Center in Edison on Thursday after an assistant noticed that his lip appeared to be sagging, he said.

The hospital ran a series of tests and determined that Pelzman had Bell’s Palsy, a common neurological disorder that causes acute paralysis in the face. Later tests showed that he also had cancer, he said.

Pelzman declined to say which type of cancer he has or what treatment he will undergo.
