Governor Dayton has prostate cancer

Governor Dayton revealed a prostate cancer diagnosis the day after collapsing during his State of the State address.

Ricardo Lopez of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The DFL governor, who turns 70 on Thursday, said that his recent annual physical examination detected a tumor in his prostate. A biopsy last week confirmed the cancer diagnosis, he said. He did not reveal the stage of the cancer, saying only it had not spread to other organs.

A Mayo Clinic spokesman said that Dayton’s physician does not believe the fainting episode is related to his cancer, attributing it instead to back pain and possible dehydration.
