Office of Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.(WASHINGTON) — California Governor Jerry Brown revealed Wednesday that he is being treated for prostate cancer.

“Fortunately, this is early stage localized prostate cancer, which is being treated with a short course of conventional radiotherapy,” Brown’s oncologist, Dr. Eric Small at the UCSF Medical Center, said in a statement released by the governor’s office.

“The prognosis is excellent,” he added, “and there are not expected to be any significant side effects.”

Brown’s office said the governor is “continuing a full work schedule during the treatment, which is expected to be completed the week of January 7, 2013.”

Brown, 74, is currently serving his third term as California’s governor.
