BOGOTA, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said on Monday that he would undergo surgery for non-aggressive prostate cancer and that the tumor was caught "in time".

"It's a small tumor located on the prostrate gland and it's a good prognosis, it's not aggressive," he said in an address to the nation.
