22 Jun Breaking News: King has Prostate Cancer
Senator Angus King, a Brunswick resident, says he plans to undergo surgery for prostate cancer, and says he hope for a full recovery after his doctor found the cancer early. King is 71 years old, and this is actually King’s second cancer diagnosis. Forty years ago a routine screening turned up an aggressive form of skin cancer, which also was caught early and King says he was cancer free in months.
Prostate cancer is among the more common types of cancer in men. One in seven will develop the disease in his lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society.
