(Harrisburg)_ Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf's office says the Democrat has a ``clean bill of health'' less than a year after he revealed he had a treatable form of prostate cancer.

His press secretary on Wednesday said the 68-year-old Wolf got the news from his doctor last week.

The spokesman, J.J. Abbott, says he had no other information about the doctor's assessment of Wolf.

Wolf has kept a busy schedule while receiving treatment, traveling around the state and attending functions.

Wolf is also planning to run for re-election in 2018 to a second four-year term.

He took office in 2015.

On Tuesday, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton announced he has prostate cancer.

The 69-year-old Democratic governor revealed the diagnosis after collapsing while delivering his State of the State address the night before.
