Governor Brown's prostate cancer puts spotlight on men's health
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Governor Brown expects to keep a full schedule as he battles prostate cancer.
The governor will be undergoing radiation treatment through January 7th but is expected to make a full recovery.
Dr. Alice Tsao of Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Northeast Fresno hopes Governor Brown's diagnosis encourages more men to undergo prostate checks.
"I think it's great that there are people out there, you have role models and you can say hey listen, I've got cancer," Dr. Alice Tsao said. "I got treatment for it. If you catch it early you can do something about it. If it's too late then your options are definitely limited."
The American Cancer Society says 241-thousand men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year. Over two thirds of them are men over 65.
