California Gov. Jerry Brown’s office has just announced the 74-year-old executive is undergoing treatment for localized prostate cancer.
Dr. Eric Small, Brown’s oncologist at the University of California, San Francisco, issued the following statement: “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.”
Brown’s office said he’s continuing a full work schedule during the treatment, which is expected to be completed the week of January 7.
