British composer and musical producer, Andrew Lloyd Webber is undergoing treatment for prostrate cancer, British media reports said on Sunday.

"Andrew is now undergoing treatment and expects to be fully back at work before the end of the year," his spokesman was quoted as saying in a statement.

The 61-year-old Lloyd Webber was being treated in hospital. The diagnosis of the cancer in its early stages was made several weeks ago, according to the statement.

The composer is best known for his musicals, including "Cats", "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Evita". He owns seven theatres in London's West End.
