Gov. Jerry Brown Treated for Cancer

California Governor Jerry Brown is undergoing treatment for prostate cancer, the Governor's Office said today in a statement.

Brown's office described the cancer as "localized" and asserted that the Governor would continue working during his treatment.

"Fortunately, this is early stage localized prostate cancer, which is being treated with a short course of conventional radiotherapy," said Eric Small, Brown's oncologist at UC San Francisco, in a prepared statement. "The prognosis is excellent, and there are not expected to be any significant side effects."

Brown, 74, underwent a procedure to remove a cancerous growth on his nose in April of last year.
