U.S. Senator Angus King has announced that he has begun radiation treatment for residual prostate cancer.
This past week, King says he completed the first week of an eight week round of treatment for a small, localized, residual prostate cancer. The Senator underwent surgery in 2015 that removed the entire prostate gland.
Senator King says that doctors have assured him that the treatment plan will not interfere with his duties as Senator, “I have been assured by my doctors, as recently as this morning, that I will remain healthy through my current Senate term and beyond.”
