AUSTIN -- Former Texas Gov. Ann Richards, left, says she has cancer of the esophagus.
The 72-year-old Democrat will undergo treatment at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
An aide says Richards went in for tests Monday and got the results yesterday.
Spokesman Bill Maddox says Richards is waiting to learn from officials at M.D. Anderson as to when she can check in.
Maddox also says the former governor is, quote: "facing this challenge."
Richards was the 45th Texas governor, serving from 1991 to 1995.
