Jerry Brown Is Getting Treatment For Prostate Cancer
Governor Jerry Brown announced today that he is getting radiation treatment for early-stage prostate cancer.The governor's office says he doesn't expect the cancer or the treatment to make much of a dent in his schedule, since the cancer was caught early. He said the treatment should be complete by January 7. He released a statement from the doc treating him, Dr. Eric Small, an oncologist at UCSF:
"Fortunately, this is early stage localized prostate cancer, which is being treated with a short course of conventional radiotherapy. The prognosis is excellent, and there are not expected to be any significant side effects."
This isn't the first time Brown has had a cancer scare. In April 2011, he had skin cancer removed from his nose that required reconstructive surgery.
