CA Gov. Brown “feels great” after prostate cancer treatment

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - California Gov. Jerry Brown says he feels great after concluding treatment for early-stage prostate cancer.

The 74-year-old Democrat told reporters in Los Angeles on Tuesday that he's "ready to go."

Brown's office disclosed last month that he was undergoing radiation treatment for the second most common cancer to afflict men. His treatment was scheduled to end this week.

It's Brown's second cancer scare since re-taking the office he first held from 1975 to 1983. Brown had surgery to remove a cancerous growth on the right side of his nose in 2011.
