Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf has a treatable form of prostate cancer, he announced Wednesday.

"The procedure's going to be a truly minor one," Wolf told reporters.

Wolf, 67, a former York, Pa., businessman who took office in January 2015, said doctors diagnosed the cancer after a regular checkup revealed abnormalities.

"In consultation with my doctors, I have a planned treatment schedule that will begin in the coming weeks. Those treatments will last the next several months, but they will present no impairment to my ability to perform my duties as governor," said Wolf, who plans to spend some time with his family before starting treatment.

He gave few details other than it will involve no chemotherapy.

Wolf, a Democrat, has been ensnared in a budget dispute with the Republican-controlled legislature the past 14 months.
