Spokeswoman Nancy Seltzer said the 69-year-old tenor had surgery last week at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and was released on Sunday.

He is expected to make a full recovery.

Seltzer says the malignancy was localised.

She said Domingo was expected to resume his singing schedule at Milan's Teatro alla Scala on April 16 with a performance of Verdi's Simon Boccanegra.

In addition to singing and conducting, Domingo will continue as general director of the Los Angeles Opera and the Washington National Opera.
