Dayton to begin cancer treatment soon
February 7, 2017
ST. PAUL — Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton likely won’t be able to wait until after the legislative session to begin his treatment for prostate cancer, he said Friday.
Dayton visited doctors at the Mayo Clinic Wednesday and Thursday and has to decide whether to treat his cancer via surgery or radiation treatment. The cancer hasn’t spread beyond the prostate, so doctors aren’t recommending chemotherapy.
