Governor Dayton to Have Surgery on Prostate
Governor Avoiding Radiation
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton announced today he plans to undergo surgery in early March to treat his prostate cancer.
He revealed the diagnosis late last month after collapsing during his State of the State address.
His doctors have said the cancer was caught early and is treatable through surgery or radiation. It has not spread beyond his prostate.
t’s the latest health setback for the governor, who recently turned 70. He has had several hip and back surgeries during his six years in office.
