After announcing he was closing the long-troubled Baltimore Men's Detention Center Thursday, Gov. Larry Hogan gave the public an update on his battle with cancer.

"I feel pretty good except for the funny hairdo," the governor said. "I'm a little more tired than I normally am, but I feel great considering what I've been through. I can't thank people enough for the incredible amount of prayers and well-wishes I've gotten."

Hogan has been diagnosed with Stage 3 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and has lost his hair due to chemotherapy treatments.

Earlier this week, the governor posted a photo of his newly bald head on social media, and joked that there is now "another white dome in the Annapolis State House!"

On Thursday, Hogan said he now looks like television detective Kojak or Miami rapper Pitbull.

"It's not easy. It's a tough thing for people to go through this. I'm really pleased with the progress I'm making," the governor said. "Other than the Kojak look. I look like Pitbull. My hair's different. I'm a little more tired, but other than that, I feel good."
