Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf says he will have radioactive seeds implanted to treat what he calls a treatable form of prostate cancer he first disclosed last month.

The 67-year-old Wolf discussed the treatment Wednesday during an appearance on WITF-FM radio in Harrisburg.

Wolf revealed in February that the cancer was detected early by his doctors, but he didn't give details at the time about how it would be treated.

Wolf has said it wouldn't impair his ability to perform his duties as governor, and he's since kept up a brisk schedule of public appearances.

The Democrat took office in January 2015. He says the cancer was detected during a routine checkup.

He says his blood levels of PSA protein, or prostate specific antigen, had been rising for years.
