MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Gov. Mark Dayton is recovering after surgery to remove his prostate.

Dayton revealed he had prostate cancer earlier this year after fainting during a speech.

After being advised on his treatment options, the governor decided to have his prostate removed.

The governor took to Facebook and said Thursday’s operation was a success.

“The other, very good news was the surgeon found no sign that the cancer had spread outside the prostate,” Dayton said.
