California Governor Treated for Early-stage Prostate Cancer

Wednesday, 12 Dec 2012 06:21 PM

 

California Governor Jerry Brown is undergoing treatment for early-stage prostate cancer, and the 74-year-old Democrat has an excellent prognosis for recovery, his office said on Wednesday.

"Fortunately, this is early-stage localized prostate cancer, which is being treated with a short course of conventional radiotherapy," Dr. Eric Small, Brown's oncologist, said in a statement.

"The prognosis is excellent, and there are not expected to be any significant side effects," he added.

Brown will complete that treatment in early January, his office said, and is expected to keep a full work schedule.

Brown had a cancerous growth removed from his nose in April 2011, the Los Angeles Times reported. (Reporting by Mary Slosson; Editing by Cynthia Johnston and Will Dunham)
