    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, who is being treated for cancer, shared a photo of his new bald head on Facebook on Tuesday, donning a pair of dark shades and a big grin. 

    "It looks like there is another white dome in the Annapolis State House!" he posted on Facebook. "Thanks to my treatments, I'm sporting a new aerodynamic look."

    Hogan wrote that he's saving time by not having to wash or comb his hair, and he no longer needs to shave his face.

    "The First Lady says I'm still sexy," he wrote. "I may be losing hair follicles, but I'm winning the battle as we kill cancer cells like crazy. So yes - the new look is a bit of a shock at first, but to me, bald is beautiful!"

    Last week, Hogan said he was "still feeling strong" after completing his second five-day round of chemotherapy. In a Facebook post Thursday night, the governor said he was happy to be headed back to Annapolis.

    Hogan  announced June 22 that he is receiving treatment for B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, calling the diagnosis "shocking news to me." Hogan has said the disease is at Stage III and his prognosis was good.

    "I won't just beat this disease, I will fight it and beat it and be a stronger governor when we get to the other side," he said June 22.

    Hogan was sworn in as governor in January.

    Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a cancer that originates in the lymphatic system, the body's disease-fighting network, according to the Mayo Clinic.
